"I have spent my whole professional life as an international economist thinking andwriting about economic geography, without being aware of it," begins Paul Krugman in the readableand anecdotal style that has become a hallmark of his writings. Krugman observes that his ownshortcomings 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 astimulating synthesis of ideas in the literature and describes new models for implementing a studyof economic geography that could change the nature of the field.Economic theory usually assumes awaydistance. Krugman argues that it is time to put it back - that the location of production in spaceis a key issue both within and between nations.Paul Krugman is Professor of Economics at theMassachusetts Institute of Technology.
