LOCATION THEORY: A theoretical framework for studying the location decisions made of firms and households based on transportation cost and spatial differences in the accessibility of inputs and markets for outputs. Location theory, developed with noted contributions from August Losch, Alfred Weber, Johann von Thunen, Walter Christaller, and Walter Isard, explicitly considers the cost of transportation in the production and consumption choices made by firms and households. Location theory has been used to explain urban density, labor migration, and land use.

Topic: Resource Quantity and Quality <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Three ways to increase resource quantity.
  • Labor: Labor increases through (1) natural population growth, (2) immigration from other nations, and (3) more participation and fewer nonworkers.
  • Capital: The key to getting more capital is investment, giving up satisfaction today to get capital tomorrow.
  • Materials: The key to increasing their quantity is exploration. Exploration is best illustrated by digging or drilling into the Earth's crust in search of mineral or fossil fuel deposits.
Two ways to increase resource quality.
  • Education-The Quality of Labor: Education increases the quality of labor resources. Better educated workers are more productive workers.
  • Education can be formal, sitting-in-a-classroom or informal, on-the-job-training experience. Both are valuable methods of increasing the quality labor.
  • Technology-The Quality of Capital: Technology is the knowledge and information society as a whole possesses concerning the production of goods and services. Better technology enables more production.
  • Technology concerns all aspects of production, but it is often seen as an improvement in the quality of capital.

SAVING SCHEDULE

A table or chart that represents the relation between saving by the household sector and income. A saving schedule is commonly used for a basic, instructional presentation of aggregate saving activity by the household sector and is also used as a source of numbers for deriving the saving line. The key measures derived from the saving-income relation in the schedule are average propensity to save and marginal propensity to save. The consumption schedule is comparable, and more important, table for the relation between consumption and income.
