Abstract

The application of location theory to the problem of industrial centralization in Latin American countries provides a framework within which some of the processes that have caused and are causing the centralization of industry in Latin American economies can be identified. Location theory is held to have two distinctive traditions what could be termed the normative and behavioural approaches. Theoretical contributions of each of these traditions are then applied to the problem of centralization of industry in Latin America. The analysis predicts increasing industrial concentration and the likelihood that big city growth will continue apace during the next decade.
