  1. INTRODUCTION: Micro-Foundations of the Organization of Space

  2. CLASSICAL & NEOCLASSICAL EQUILIBRIUM PROPOSITIONS: DEDUCTIVE FOUNDATIONS OF LOCATIONAL THINKING
  3. The question of actual location must be distinguished from that of the rational location. The two need not coincide... it would be dangerous to conclude that what is must also be rational since otherwise it would not exist, and that therefore any theoretical determination of the correct location would therefore be superfluous. [Our] real duty ... is not to explain our sorry reality, but to improve it. The question of the best location is far more dignified than determination of the actual one. [August Loesch, The Economics of Location, 1944/1954, p.4]
