    George, Henry. Progress and Poverty: An Inquiry into the Causes of Industrial Depressions and of Increase of Want with Increase in Wealth... The Remedy. 1879 (Robert Schalkenbach Foundation, New York, 1962)

    Three parties divide the produce -- the laborer, the capitalist, and the landowner. If, with the increase in production the laborer gets no more more and the capitalist no more, it is a necessary inference that the landowner reaps the whole gain... The increase in rent explains why wages and interest do not increase. The cause which gives to the landowner is the cause which denies to the laborer and capitalist... Whereever the value of land is relatively low, wages and intersts are relatively high; wherever land is relatively high, wages and interest are relatively low. (pp.222-3)

    Golledge, Reginald G. and Robert J. Stimson, Spatial Behavior: A Geographic Perspective. New York: Guilford Press, 1997. [GF95.G65.1997] [ Guilford Description]

    "This is not a book oriented toward a single narrow viewpoint; it is certainly not Marxist or materialist; it is somewhat realist; it is partly postmodern; it has elements of positivism; it draws in part on the tradition of spatial analysis; but above all, it focuses on decision making and choice behavior. We have no ideological axe to grind in this book. We think it reflects a lot of geography as it is done today." (Preface, p.vii)

    "Examining a broad range of questions--from how human beings negotiate the spaces in which
    they live, work, and play to how firms and institutions, and their spatial behaviors, are affected by processes of economic and societal change--this work presents an overview of research into the spatial behavior of humans and their institutions. Updating and expanding concepts of decision making and choice behavior on different geographic scales, this major revision of the authors' acclaimed Analytical Behavioral Geography presents theoretical foundations, extensive case
    studies, and empirical evidence of human behavior in a comprehensive range of physical, social, and economic settings... the volume also covers issues of gender, discusses traditionally excluded groups such as the physically and mentally challenged, and addresses the pressing needs of our growing elderly population."

    Existing location-production theory is inadequate for discussing the general location-production problem faced by modern firms. Reemodeling of this theory is needed. How do Western and Japanese industrial purchasing linkages compare? Is existing location and linkage theory able to account for the possible spatial impacts associated with just-in-time (JIT) production-and-purchasing philosophies?

As a result the state complained frequently of the county's falling behind in its "tax effort"
