VALDIVIA LOPEZ, Marcos. Spacial economic impacts of creative industries of the metropolitan areas of Mexico. Estud. front [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.30, pp.215-259. ISSN 2395-9134.

Growth dynamics in contemporary cities and their territorial organization are subject to the influence of economic activities associated with creative industries. In this research, we perform a spatial analysis of such creative industries across all metropolitan areas of Mexico during the period. In order to show the spatial relevance that creative industries have over the urban structure, we calculate the employment concentration of each of the sectors and subsectors with respect to the distance from the closest metropolitan area's Central Business District. We conclude that creative industries tend to localize close to the Metropolitan Areas' CBD and they are the ones with greater capacity to generate positive externalities on employment growth.

Keywords : creative class; creative industries; tertiaritation; spillovers; urban externalities.
