This may seem like a strong statement to make in isolation.

The first big effort to get space into economics came in the 1950s, under the leadership of the redoubtable Walter Isard. Isard was and is a man of huge energy and vast learning; he performed an invaluable service in making the previously inaccessible German tradition available to monolingual economists like myself; and he created an interdisciplinary enterprise, regional science, which has been of considerable practical importance in the real world. But the aim he set himself in his magnum opus, Location and Space-Economy, to bring spatial concerns into the heart of economic theory, was never attained.
The tradition was, in fact, exasperatingly blurry about who was making what decisions, and almost completely silent on the question of how decisions of individuals might affect one another.
