Economic and spatial aspects of von Thunen's factor intensity theory.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This theory, or the formulation of optimum intensity of land uses, has been proposed for several economic conditions using classical, neoclassical, and general approaches. The theory may also be presented through the development of intensity curves, producing its missing spatial element, which have different relations with von Thunen's crop-theory rent curves, thus producing spatially expanding or shrinking isolated states. -Author
