Details This project developed a theory of interregional economics. A unique feature of project is that the theory not only studies economic geography with transportation costs and technological change, but also introduces capital accumulation into the theory. Although it will still require some years to complete the goal of building a comprehensive theory of spatial economics, this project succeeded in building a general interregional and international economic theory with agglomeration and externalities.
