The spatial economy : cities, regions and international trade by Masahisa Fujita( Book )

39 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors show how seemingly disparate models reflect a few basic themes, and in so doing they develop a common "grammar" for discussing a variety of issues. They show how a common approach that emphasizes the three-way interaction among increasing returns, transportation costs, and the movement of productive factors can be applied to a wide range of issues in urban, regional, and international economics
Urban economic theory : land use and city size by Masahisa Fujita( Book )

32 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in English and Japanese and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the economic reasons why people choose to live where they live and develops, through analysis of the bid rent function, a unified theory of urban land use and city size. The first part of the book explicates the basic theory of urban land use and optimal city size. Residential location behavior of households is examined in a microeconomic framework and equilibrium and optimal patterns of residential land use are discussed. The corresponding equilibrium and optimal city sizes are studied in a variety of contexts. Part Two extends the classical theories of von Thunen and Alonso with the addition of externality factors such as local public goods, crowding and congestion, and racial prejudice. The rigorous mathematical approach and theoretical treatment of the material make Urban Economic Theory of interest to researchers in urban economics, location theory, urban geography, and urban planning
Economics of agglomeration : cities, industrial location, and regional growth by Masahisa Fujita( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides the first unifying treatment of the range of economic reasons for the clustering of firms and households. Its goal is to explain further the trade-off between various forms of increasing returns and different types of mobility costs. Although referring to agglomeration as a generic term is convenient, it should be noted that the concept of economic agglomeration refers to distinct real world situations. The main focus of the treatment is on cities, but it also explores the formation of agglomerations, such as commercial districts within cities, industrial clusters at the regional level, and the existence of imbalance between regions. The book is rooted within the realm of modern economics and borrows concepts from geography and regional science, which makes it accessible to a broad audience formed by economists, geographers, regional planners, and other scientists. It may be used in coursework for graduate students and upper-level undergraduates
Spatial development planning : a dynamic convex programming approach by Masahisa Fujita( Book )

12 editions published in 1978 in 3 languages and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics of agglomeration : cities, industrial location, and globalization by Masahisa Fujita( Book )

15 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic activities are not concentrated on the head of a pin, nor are they spread evenly over a featureless plane. On the contrary, they are distributed very unequally across locations, regions, and countries. Even though economic activities are, to some extent, spatially concentrated because of natural features, economic mechanisms that rely on the trade-off between various forms of increasing returns and different types of mobility costs are more fundamental. This book is a study of the economic reasons for the existence of a large variety of agglomerations arising from the global to the local. This second edition combines a comprehensive analysis of the fundamentals of spatial economics and an in-depth discussion of the most recent theoretical developments in new economic geography and urban economics. It aims to highlight several of the major economic trends observed in modern societies
Economic integration in East Asia : perspectives from spatial and neoclassical economics by Ajia Keizai Kenkyūjo (Japan)( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Economic Integration in East Asia addresses these issues from the perspectives of both spatial and neoclassical economics. As the book highlights, if the regional disparities continue to grow, this may constitute a fatal obstacle to deepening integration and the growth potential of East Asia." "With its focus firmly on recommendations for the future, this book will be of great interest to academics and researchers of development, Asian studies and economic geography as well as development specialists in government and international organizations involved in East Asian integration."--Jacket

18 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
