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.

BROOKINGS INSTITUTION: An independent, nonpartisan organization devoted to research, analysis, education, and publication focused on public policy issues in the areas of economics, foreign policy, and governance. The Brookings Institution takes its name from Somers Brookings (1850-1932) who in 1922 and 1924 founded the Institute of Economics and a graduate school bearing his name. These two institutions and the Institute for Government Research (IGR), which was the first private organization devoted to analyzing public policy issues at the national level, merged in 1927 to create the Brookings Institution. The Brookings Institution is a non-profit organization located in Washington, D.C.

ALLOCATION EFFECT

A change in the allocation of resources caused by placing taxes on economic activity. By creating disincentives to produce, consume, or exchange, taxes generally alter resource allocations. The allocation effect is typically used when governments seek to discourage the production, consumption, or exchange of particular goods or activities that are deemed undesirable (such as tobacco use or pollution). This is one of two effects of taxation. The other (primary) is the revenue effect, which is the generation of revenue used to finance government operations.
