Location is vital to the efficiency and profitability of industrial activity. Industrial Location presents a comprehensive introduction to and critical review of this field of growing academic and business interest. In business, the right choices have to be made to produce profit. Industrial location is a fixed investment, crucial to the strategy and capital investment of any organization. Location also impacts upon non-investors, directly affecting employment, the environment, and economic activity in the locale. Focusing chiefly on the United States, but drawing on an international range of cases, the authors explain the economic, social and political forces which have shaped comtemporary patterns of industrialization and examines the changing nature of production and systems.

Industrial Location Economics

Because space is not homogenous, economic activities occur in different locations. Understanding the reasons behind this and understanding exactly how industries are spatially organized is the central theme of this book. Industrial Location Economics discusses different aspects of industrial location behaviour from a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives. Each of the analytical traditions provides insights into the nature of industrial location behaviour and the factors which can influence it. The authors, internationally renowned scholars from around the world, detail the issues and characteristics surrounding spatial economic behaviour. Classical approaches to location analysis...

Industrial location

Webber tackles a fundamental topic, the strategy and pattern behind the location of industrial production. He uses examples from the aircraft parts industry, the industrial decline in the UK, and the location pattern of manufacturing within cities to illustrate industrial location analysis. They suggest that as transport costs have fallen the main location factors have become labour and agglomeration, themselves dependent upon general economic, political, and social systems. Webber looks at the history of manufacturing and the principles of location choice to produce a novel introductory treatment of location theory. This volume will be of interest to geographers, economists, and students of fiscal policy since attention is paid to location incentives and tax policies.

The Economics of Industrial Location

The motivation for this book comes from the apparent inability of existing orthodox location theory to throw light on a series of location-production problems which are typically faced by modem manufacturing and distribution ftrms. These problems are related to the treatment of time by ftrms, who normally view time costs in terms of inventory costs. From this perspective, traditional industrial location and linkage analysis can be re-cast in a form in which space time problems can be dealt with in a unifted manner. The role played by input factor prices and market prices in location behaviour becomes dependent on the relationship between the frequency of shipment and the distance of shipment...

Industrial Location and Economic Integration

"Barbara Dluhosch identifies and analyses the main pillars of the new economic geography. She then presents an essentially new approach focusing on the decline of communication costs, and introduces cost competition and technological choice, which have largely been neglected. The policy implications of this are critically evaluated by drawing on experiences of European economic integration."--BOOK JACKET.
