Many industries have firms that tend to agglomerate, that is, locate very close to one another, leading to geographic concentration. For example, the motion picture industry is concentrated in California, the fashion industry is concentrated in New York, and the petroleum industry is concentrated in Texas. Agglomeration can be caused by accessibility to a concentrated natural resource (such as petroleum or sunny weather), but if often feeds upon itself through agglomeration economies.

FACTOR ACCUMULATION: An increase in the quantity of the four basic factors used to produce goods and services in the economy--labor, capital, land, and entrepreneurship. Increases in these "factors of production" enable an economy to produce more goods and services and therefore the long-run expansion of the economy's ability to produce output--that is, economic growth. Economic growth however, is made possible not only by increasing the quantity of the economy's resources, but also by increasing their quality.

FREE-RIDER PROBLEM

A problem underlying the provision of public goods that occurs when a person consumes or benefits from a good without making payment. The free-rider problem is the primary reason that public goods are produced by governments. Because public goods are characterized by the inability to exclude nonpayers, once a public good is produced anyone, everyone, can consume without making payment, that is, get a "free ride." Voluntary payments like those occurring in markets will not provide enough revenue to pay production costs. The only way to finance public goods is to force free-riders, and everyone else, to pay through government taxes. The free-rider problem also applies to common-property goods.
