Conceptualizing economies and their geographies : spaces, flows and circuits.

Hudson, R. (2004) 'Conceptualizing economies and their geographies : spaces, flows and circuits.', Progress in human geography., 28 (4). pp. 447-471.


The last decade or so has been one of ongoing, at times heated, debate in economic geography as to how best to conceptualize and theorize economies and their geographies. Reflecting on these debates, I identify six axioms that are central to conceptualizing economic geographies. I then go on to consider issues of culture and the economy and the relationships between them. The paper explores the links between political-economic and cultural-economic approaches, suggesting that they are most productively seen as complementary both/and approaches rather than as competitive either/or ones.
