Urban and regional economies are closely related to international trade and labor markets. We analyze the factors of sustainable growth of cities and regions as globalization and the aging of society progress. We also investigate how different income classes and races with different historical backgrounds are spatially distributed based on the spatial economic approach and analyze the factors of intercity and intracity economic differentials. We aim to combine economic geography, trade theory, transport economics, labor economics, and development economics, and develop new research areas which will lead to useful economic policy implications from both welfare-economic and social perspectives.
