  • Claude Ponsard
Part of the Texts and Monographs in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (TMECO)


Shortly after the publication of Weber’s work, Bortkiewicz and Schumpeter began emphasizing the need for a general equilibrium analysis to integrate the partial theories of location (1). Furlan, in his article, recognizes fully the complicated interrelations between the numerous economic factors of location and “the spatial transformation of goods”, but his line of development follows very simplified market models [34].
