At point G, it becomes advantageous for the firm to serve market point M,,rather than M3. Therefore, the firm makes a greater profit from selling automobiles to market M,than to market M,.
The firm could switch markets completely from M,to Ms. Alternatively,it could decide to supply both markets M, to M,. Under these conditions, it may be that a new optimum location of H arises, in which the firm at H buys from two supplier locations M, and M,, and sells at two market locations, M3and Ms. More complex arrangements are possible. Once again, this will move the Weber optimum away from point H, and will also alter the inter-regional.
This type of geometrical arrangement, in which a firm has multiple input sources and multiple okput market locations, is the norm for firms in reality. Although our analysis here has been developed primarily with only two input source locations and one output market location, the Weber location-production arguments and the associated isodapane analysis are perfectly applicable to the case of firms with multiple input and output locations.
The model is designed to help us understand the advantages which geography confers on particular locations as sites for investment. A first key feature of the Weber model is therefore that it allows us to understand the factor price conditions under which other areas will become more attractive as locations for investment. Secondly, the model allows us to see location as an evolutionary process, in which changes in factor prices can engender changes in location behaviour, which themselves can change the supply linkages between suppliers, firms, and markets.
Industrial location problems are inherently evolutionary in their nature as firms respond to new markets and products by changing their locations, and by changing the people they buy from and the people they sell to. All of these are spatial issues. There is one final issue relating to the Weber model which needs to be addressed.
In reality, firms are constantly changing their input suppliers and output markets in response to changes in input and output market prices. From our Weber analysis, these changes will also imply that the optimum location of the firm is continuously changing, and that in order to ensure the profitability of any particular location the equilibrium inter-regionalfactor price gradient must also be conunuously changing.
However, observation tells us that 6rms in reality do not move 7ery frequently, and this raises the question of the extent to which the Weber model is a useful analytical tool to describe industrial location behaviour.
However, within the above framework we can easily ifcorporate I. These ircreases in the prices n f local factor inputs w i l l reduce profits, ceteris paribus, thereby reducing the attractiveness of the area as a location for the firms.
This raises the question h o w long w i l l the cluster o f firms continue t o exist profitably in the area? This question o f industrial clustering is the topic of the next chapter, in which we discuss agglomeration economies, the growth of cities and urban hierarchies, and centreperiphery relationships. How does the location of input sources and output markets determine the location behaviour of the firm7. To what extent are firm-locational changes dependent on the substitution characteristics of the firm's productionfunction?
What role can location play in the competitive strategy of firms. What insights are provided for industrial location analysis by behavioural theories of firm behaviour? Within the Weber framework, we can summarize the relative strength of the transportation 'pull' towards any particular input source point. If at any particular location. This is because the marginal increase in the total transport costs for the shipment of input 1 is greater than the marginal fall in the total transport costs for the shipment of input 2.
Within the Weber triangle. Ir; this situatibn. In the two previous chapters we discussed the reasons for the variations in the spatial patterns of industrial investment and activity. As we have seen, firms will locate in different areas for different reasons, and where this behaviour leads to the co-locationof firms we observe spatial concentrations of investment.
In some cases, the various advantages which are sometimes assodated with spatial concentrations of such activity, give rise to the growth of both cities and also hierarchical systems of cities.
As we know, individual cities can grow to be very large, and in some cases as large as some individual small countries. There will, however, be a variety of different people living within such spatial concentrations, and also there will be a variety of activities taking place within the city. This consequently brings us to the question of how such people and activities are distributed within the individual urban economy.
In discussing how people and activities are distributed within the urban economy we focus on the question of urban land use.
In other words, we try to explain why certain groups of people, or certain industrial activities, occu'py land at particular locations within the city economy. Observation of the behaviour of urban economies suggests that there are two key features common to all urban areas. These features are that, in general, land prices tend to fall with increasing distance from the city centre at a diminishing rate, and that the average land area occupied by each household or business activity tends to increase with increasing distance away from the city centre.
Given that there is a market for land in which land is allocated according to users, in order to understand the allocation of land within the city and the relationship between location and land prices, we must therefore ask the question of how much people or firms are willing to pay in order to occupy land at any particular location. In sections 3. In the subsequent sections, these models will be contrasted with alternative explanations of the stnccture of urban land use and land prices.

Modern Urban and Regional Economics explains the spatial economic underpinnings of the behaviour of urban and regional economies in order to highlight the differences between the two types of economy. The explicitly spatial approach enables the author to present both urban economics and regional economics within a single integrated framework, using clear model-based explanations from first principles and extensive graphic illustration of the theories discussed.
Therefore, in order to discuss the existence of spatial industrial clusters, it is necessary to employ the notion that place- specific economies of scale do exist, but.
Modern Urban and Regional Economics, Second Edition, explains the spatial economic foundations of the behavior of urban and regional economies, highlighting the differences between the two types of economy. By employing an explicitly spatial approach, author Philip McCann is able to discuss both urban and regional economics within a single integrated framework. He presents clear, model-based explanations from first principles and also provides extensive graphic illustrations of the theories discussed. Covering classical approaches along with the latest models, this unique text helps students gain a thorough understanding of both basic analytical techniques and the most state-of-the-art thinking in the field.

Решив, что никакой опасности нет, Стратмор запустил файл, минуя фильтры программы Сквозь строй. Сьюзан едва могла говорить. - Никакой Цифровой крепости не существует, - еле слышно пробормотала она под завывание сирены и, обессилев, склонилась над своим компьютером. Танкадо использовал наживку для дурачков… и АНБ ее проглотило. Сверху раздался душераздирающий крик Стратмора. ГЛАВА 86 Когда Сьюзан, едва переводя дыхание, появилась в дверях кабинета коммандера, тот сидел за своим столом, сгорбившись и низко опустив голову, и в свете монитора она увидела капельки пота у него на лбу. Сирена выла не преставая.
Похоже, нужно было проанализировать политический фон, на котором разворачивались эти события, сравнить их и перевести это сопоставление в магическое число… и все это за пять минут. ГЛАВА 124 - Атаке подвергся последний щит. На ВР отчетливо было видно, как уничтожалось окно программной авторизации. Черные всепроникающие линии окружили последний предохранительный щит и начали прорываться к сердцевине банка данных. Алчущие хакеры прорывались со всех уголков мира.
Да, сэр, я… - Джаббе? - Фонтейн гневно поднялся. - Какого черта вы не позвонили Стратмору. - Мы позвонили! - не сдавалась Мидж.
ГЛАВА 56 Мидж Милкен в сердцах выскочила из своего кабинета и уединилась в комнате для заседаний, которая располагалась точно напротив. Кроме тридцати футов ого стола красного дерева с буквами АНБ в центре столешницы, выложенной из черных пластинок вишневого и орехового дерева, комнату украшали три акварели Мариона Пайка, ваза с листьями папоротника, мраморная барная стойка и, разумеется, бачок для охлаждения воды фирмы Спарклетс. Мидж налила себе стакан воды, надеясь, что это поможет ей успокоиться. Делая маленькие глотки, она смотрела в окно. Лунный свет проникал в комнату сквозь приоткрытые жалюзи, отражаясь от столешницы с затейливой поверхностью.
