David L. Rigby
University of California, Los Angeles
David Rigby is a professor in the Department of Geography at UCLA. His early research analyzed the relationship between technological change, the rate of profit, and crises within the capitalist economy. More recent work uses microdata to explore the economic dynamics of firms, industries, and regions. This research follows four different trajectories: development of evolutionary arguments within economic geography; analysis of the form of agglomeration economies; exploration of the links between labor mobility, wages, and firm performance; and investigation of the geographies of trade and income inequality. David received his Ph.D. in Geography from McMaster University.
