Description - Geography and Trade by Paul Krugman
Paul Krugman observes that his own shortcomings as an economist in ignoring economic geography have been shared by many professional economists, primarily because of the lack of explanatory models. In "Geography and Trade" he provides a stimulating synthesis of ideas in the literature and describes new models for implementing a study of economic geography that could change the nature of the field. Economic theory usually asssumes away distance. Krugman argues that it is time to put it back - that the location of production in space is a key issue both within and between nations.
