staples theory
Staples Theory
  • A Canadian theory of Harold Adams Innis
  • Staple: a crude commodity or resource product
  • Staples emerged at different times and places
  • With distinctive upstream and downstream linked industries
  • Influencing regional economic development
staples theory6
Staples Theory
  • East-West sequential development of Canada: Fish, furs, timber, agriculture, minerals
  • Staple exports determined exogenously by global markets
  • Economic and social character and settlement geography, the essence of Canada , results from dominant staple
  • Staple trap: prosperity is dependent on external markets, ~ capital, ~ technology
  • Dependency of the dominions, Canada is not alone
staples theory ii
Staples Theory II
  • Role of the state is to foster economic development based on comparative advantage in staples
  • …maintaining a positive balance of trade
  • …creating employment
  • Diversifying regional economies
    • Upstream linkages to supply staple industries from local sources
    • Downstream linkages to process and add further value to staples at home

growth pole theory
Growth Pole Theory
  • Economic growth is not uniform
  • Emerges at certain points in space (urban centres)
  • Which benefit from a “key industry” (pôle de croissance) and related sectors
  • Spatially clustered centres of growth
  • Surrounded by “backward,” or underdeveloped hinterland in the periphery
favorable impacts of the growth pole on the hinterland
Favorable Impacts of the Growth Pole on the Hinterland
  • Trickle-down effect: growth pole buys resource products, invests some of its surplus cash, absorbs some of unemployed, recreation and urban field effect: cottage country
  • Thus concentrated growth at the centre “spills over”
unfavorable impacts of the growth pole on the hinterland
Unfavorable Impacts of theGrowth Pole on the Hinterland
  • Backwash effect, growth at the centre comes at the expense of periphery.
  • Less efficient peripheral services cannot compete with those of the growth pole
  • Selective out-migration strips away the most innovative and entrepreneurial; brain drain
  • Capital flows from periphery to the core to secure the highest return
