The paper moves occupational mobility, hedonic preferences and induced wage-amenity trade-off into the center of location theory. Regional amenities emerge as important determinants of location patterns in human capital intensive industries. Firms do not follow workers completely to their most preferred locations but engage in a trade-off between following and compensation. Concentration of firms can be induced by regional amenities, independent of their agglomeration effects
