The authors lament the little attention that has been accorded to the role of space in the economy. They discuss the location decisions of firms and consumers under various assumptions and show how important the introduction of a land market can be for such decisions. They conclude that no satisfactory comprehensive model that incorporate the simultaneous decisions of firms and consumers and includes capitalisation and transport costs exists. They nevertheless consider that there is a rich set of problems to be explored and which may yield such a model.

Keywords:   firms’ and consumers’ location decisions, land market, location, space, transport costs
