Abstract:

Theories of economic integration are based in part on concepts from location theory. As static models are generally inadequate for the dynamic context of integration, the author formulates a dynamic version of Loschs static location model and examines its implications for economic integration through a dynamic programming approach. Although the potential advantages from integration of expansion and location policies are substantial, marginal returns diminish rapidly as the size of the integrated group is enlarged. Author
