Economic implications of long distance commuting in the Chilean mining industry

Resources Policy 36(3), Sept 2011: “Long-distance commuting spreads the mining activity benefits to other regions in Chile. ► Neighboring regions get 30% of the benefits from sending mining commuters to mining regions. ► Main regions get over 60% of the benefits from sending mining commuters to mining regions. ► In Chile, long distance commuting related to mining activity is promoting concentration. ► Reducing regional disparities policies should consider the impact of commuting among regions.”
