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.

QUASI-PUBLIC CORPORATION: A business activity that is privately controlled, but authorized by government legislation. The Federal National Mortgage Association is one example. Quasi-public corporations are set up when governments expand their activities and/or divest themselves of current government functions. Quasi-public corporations often result because governments seek to promote a particular activity, such as student loans, low cost home mortgages, or lotteries, but do not want the administrative burden.
