This paper proposes a new spatial equilibrium model, and use it to discuss issues related to rural depopulation. The discussion focuses on how investments in transport infrastructure and the spatial distribution of basic-sector jobs can promote a relatively balanced growth of peripheral and central areas of a region. It also studies how the location of bifurcation points depend on spatial interaction behavioural parameters and variables subject to regional policy. It also discusses the issue of the timing of interventions intended to prevent a process of rural depopulation
