Publisher: United States Cambridge University Press 2001Description: xxiii, 350p.ISBN: 9780521779678.Subject(s): Economic geographyDDC classification: 330.9 Summary: The need for better understanding of the role location plays in economic life was first and most famously made explicit by Bertil Ohlin in 1933. However it is only recently, with the development of computer packages able to handle complex systems, as well as advances in economic theory, that Ohlin's vision has been met and a framework developed which explains the distribution of economic activity across space.
