Andreas Predoehl was a German economist (associated with the universities of Muenster and Kiel) who made a name for himself in German economics in the fields of international trade and trade policy as well as location and transportation economics. In the English-speaking world, he is known especially well
  1. as a result of his suggestion to view the industrial location problem as part of production theory and the problem of substitution [See his own publication in English of 1928 and Walter Isard's brief piece of 1963]
  2. based on his comprehensive, highly geographic and trade-oriented, developmental framework of "core areas" and "core formation" (reviewed by Andreas Grotewold in 1971 and 1979, see below).
