The authors show how a common approach that emphasizes the three-way interaction among increasing returns, transportation costs, and the movement of productive factors can be applied to a wide range of issues in urban, regional, and international economics.

Since 1990 there has been a renaissance of theoretical and empirical work on the spatial aspects of the economy―that is, where economic activity occurs and why. Using new tools―in particular, modeling techniques developed to analyze industrial organization, international trade, and economic growth―this "new economic geography" has emerged as one of the most exciting areas of contemporary economics.

The authors show how seemingly disparate models reflect a few basic themes, and in so doing they develop a common "grammar" for discussing a variety of issues. They show how a common approach that emphasizes the three-way interaction among increasing returns, transportation costs, and the movement of productive factors can be applied to a wide range of issues in urban, regional, and international economics. This book is the first to provide a sound and unified explanation of the existence of large economic agglomerations at various spatial scales.

About the Author:

Masahisa Fujita is Professor of Economics at the Kyoto Institute of Economic Research, Kyoto University.

Review:

A superb volume on the new economics of geography by three pioneersin the field. This lucid, elegant book is a must for any graduate course in urban economics.

Edward L. Glaeser, Professor of Economics, Harvard University (Endorsement)

Fujita, Krugman, and Venables provide a brilliant and lucid survey of the new economy geography. In strictly positive terms, the work is an even more radical departure from orthodoxy than the new trade theory of the 1980s. The Spatial Economy is absolutely essential reading for serious students and scholars in international trade, regional, and urban economics.

Donald R. Davis, Department of Economics, Harvard University (Endorsement)

This book provides an excellent and accessible analysis of an important new literature, the so-called New Economic Geography. It is written by exactly the right people and comes out at an opportune moment.

Richard E. Baldwin, Professor of International Economics, Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva (Endorsement)

Monopolistic competition has revolutionized our thinking about a wide variety of economic topics, and it has established a firm foothold in macroeconomics. This splendid book shows how a number of common themes that have emerged from this approach can be used to advance our understanding of economic geography, regional and urban economics, international trade and economic development. It represents applied theory at its very best.

Elhanan Helpman, The Eitan Berglas School of Economics, Tel Aviv University, and Department of Economics, Harvard University (Endorsement)
