The A. focuses on the spatial development of business services and on how entrepreneurs can use the advantages of proximity in their networks of relationships. This Ph.D. thesis deals with two theoretical approaches in economic geography: the assumption of the importance of the foot loose character of firms and the hypothesis that face-to-face cntracts are decisive. It is concluded that proximity is advantageous where unplanned and uncertain transactions are concerned. Insofar as the urban environment creates conditions for economic activity, these are especially important for firms operating in uncertain markets. -(AGD)
