Abstract

A formal micro-economic model of a simple dualistic spatial economy is outlined. The equilibrium solution to this model includes a measure of population density whose level is dependent on the technical parameters of the economy. Numerical experiments with the model highlight the importance of a saturation principle in determining how economic growth affects the spatial pattern of population density. Although the model is abstract, the saturation principle is seen to be an important concept for future applied behavioral models of regional development.
