People to know:
Thomas Malthus: population growth faster than food supply
Rostow: stage of economic development
US economist Walter Rostow, argued that countries would progress through five stages
Progressive stages of economic growth.
Strength of the Modernization model:
Over the long term, all countries are capable of development.
It has proved to works for some countries: Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan (Asian Dragons) the American South, Czech Republic, Ireland
Rostow’s model did not account for regional constraints
Wallerstein: core-periphery model
Immanuel Wallerstein, a leading advocate of the approach characterizes the world system as a set of mechanisms which redistributes resources from the periphery to the core.
Von Thunen’s Agricultural ModelA land use model used to explain the importance of proximity to the market in the choice of crops on commercial farms(this created a concentric pattern: circles sharing the same centers)
Because farmers must pay to transport their produce to the market, and these costs are directly proportional to distance, the profit for each product declines as a straight line with increasing distance from the market
Weber’s least cost theoryaccounted for the location of a manufacturing plant in terms of the owner’s desire to minimize three categories of costs.
Weber used locational triangles to illustrate the impact of transport costs on industrial location.
A. Transporting raw materials cost the same as the finished product
B. Transporting raw materials costs less than finished product (maybe finished product delicate/more packaging)
C. Transporting raw materials costs more than finished product (loss in bulk)
D. More of raw material from R2 needed than R1
