GEOG 331 - Economic Geography

Economic geography is a sub-discipline of geography that describes and explains where and how in time and place products are produced and consumed, and the political and social relations that formed through their production and exchange. In this class we examine how geography plays a role in economic life. While geography plays a crucial role in the economy (where products are made, for example), its role has been neglected by traditional economic theory. In this course we sort out precisely the role it plays in the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. To do this we consider the various actors at work in the economy (firms, labor, states, and so on), various theories of how the economy works, and how these things are reflected in our everyday lives.
