Déplacements de consommation et transferts de richesses en Île-de-France

Abstract : Transfers of wealth are increasingly shown as a key component of the community economic development. It is well-known that commuters contribute to moving wealth from their workplaces to the residential areas where they live. Moreover a second wave also exists from residential areas to spaces for consumption. The objective of this paper is to propose an original measure of the subregional money flows related to consumer spending in the Paris Region. This requires a cross data operation analysis using a regional travel as well as a national household budget survey. The purpose is to improve the regional economics understanding by measuring consumer attraction and wealth redistribution. The results highlight structural imbalances and the spaces for consumption spreading. Leisure and entertainment are concentrated in Paris when the suburbs are specialized in providing manufactured goods. These subregionals transfers of wealth show the interlinkages shaping the Paris metropolitan area.
