Economic Geography

An Institutional Approach

Roger Hayter and Jerry Patchell

This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the study of economic activity in place and across space, centered on the interplay of the economic, social, and political institutions that do so much to determine the quality of life in a particular place: from its economic efficiency to the degree of social equity it enjoys and its position in what is now a global economic system. Perfect for courses in economic geography, the text provides both a solid foundation in the location dynamics of value chains and a perspective that recognizes the interdependence of places, institutions, activities, and ways of life around the world.
