Abstract [en]

While the destruction of economic activities on the one hand can be regarded as a necessary component of the creation of new activities that also tend to have positive long-term macro-economic effects, it is, on the other hand, more than obvious that the regional ability to accommodate such changes varies considerably both across and within countries. This paper discusses under which conditions economic crises indeed may trigger processes that may lead to a renewal of regional skills and industries, and when (and where) this is less likely to happen. It does so by presenting recent conceptual advances in the field of Evolutionary Economic Geography together with ongoing research from a project using Swedish longitudinal micro-data. Preliminary findings suggest that regions with economic endowments that are complementary to each other (i.e., related) are better in accommodating chocks since that allow the workforce to more easily find new employment without being subject to skill destruction. A relative absence of related activities, however, increases the risk of unemployment, income losses and outmigration. Hence, related activities not only reduce the individual adjustment costs in relation to redundancies, it also enhances regional resilience by allowing a successful economic diversification
