Over the centuries, international trade and the location of economic activity have been at the forefront of economic thought. Even today, free trade, globalization, and urbanization remain as commonplace topics in the popular debate as well as in scholarly analyses. Traditionally, trade theory and economic geography evolved as separate subfields of economics. More recently, however, they have converged become more and more united through new theoretical insights, which emphasize that the same basic forces simultaneously determine specialization across countries for a given international distribution of factors of production trade theory and the long-run location of those factors across countries economic geography.

From Gaston Eyskens Lectures. Krugman observes that his own shortcomings in ignoring economic geography have been shared by many professional economists, primarily because of the lack of explanatory models. In Geography and Trade he provides a stimulating synthesis of ideas in the literature and describes new models for implementing a study of economic geography that could change the nature of the field. Economic theory usually assumes away distance. Krugman argues that it is time to put it back - that the location of production in space is a key issue both within and between nations.
The Nobel prize for economics was awarded to Paul Krugman for three papers -Krugman , , In this paper we illustrate that, indeed, these three papers are closely connected. We present - a summary of - the papers using a unified framework. Central in the discussion is the so-called home market effect that was already alluded to in Krugman We evaluate his work and conclude that these three papers changed and improved the way economists think about trade and geography.
It is argued that the extension of trade theory to geographical economics has widened the scope of analysis of economic interaction between different countries or regions , but that the NEG still has some way to go in exploring the role of space. Transport costs have mostly been introduced in an ad-hoc fashion, but there are first attempts to endogenize them in terms of market prices for trade services. The location of production The producing unit with the lowest costs requires production at a large scale and distribution of the products of a corresponding area.

The committee stresses that the award was essentially given to Krugman for three of his papers: Krugman , , a, see the list of references in our book. The paper sets out the core model of geographical economics and is thus the main building block for chapters 3 and 4 of our book. Following the award of the Nobel Prize, the following papers were written to evaluate, summarize or celebrate Krugman's work on trade and geography:. Fujita, M. Behrens, K.
This work consists of a survey of the academic work of Paul Robin Krugman. It seeks to shed light on his main contributions to economic theory, mainly those for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in His legacy in academia can be assessed through the recognition of his work on the identification of international trade patterns and the explanation on why spatial imbalances in the distribution of economic activities arise in an increasingly globalized economy. Through these contributions to trade theory and economic geography, Krugman is often credited as being one of the pioneering researchers in the New Trade Theory and the founding father together with Masahisa Fujita of the New Economic Geography.
