Economic geography

  • economic geography
  • The geography of people making a living, dealing with the spatial patterns of production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. The development of economic geography over the past three decades has witnessed the substitution of analysis for description, leading to an identification of the factors and an understanding of the processes affecting the spatial differentiation of economic activities over the earth's surface.
Abstract from DBPedia
    Economic geography is the subfield of human geography which studies economic activity and factors affecting them. It can also be considered a subfield or method in economics.There are four branches of economic geography.There is,primary sector,Secondary sector,Tertiary sector, &Quaternary sector. Economic geography takes a variety of approaches to many different topics, including the location of industries, economies of agglomeration (also known as "linkages"), transportation, international trade, development, real estate, gentrification, ethnic economies, gendered economies, core-periphery theory, the economics of urban form, the relationship between the environment and the economy (tying into a long history of geographers studying culture-environment interaction), and globalization.

    経済地理学(けいざいちりがく、英: economic geography)は、経済諸活動の分布や空間的差異、空間的相互作用を対象とする学問分野である。経済学と地理学の両方に関連し、両方からのアプローチがある。農業・製造業・商業・金融業・観光業など諸産業の立地や集積の形成、財の流通・分配における空間的流動、消費局面における空間的差異などが、おもな研究課題となるが、これに対するアプローチには多様なものがある。
