Example text

Rigby (1996) The Golden Age Illusion: Rethinking Postwar Capitalism. New York: Guilford. 2 Thinking back, thinking ahead Some questions for economic geographers Susan Hanson This book is about change: How has economic geography been changing over the past 30 years and how might it continue to change? What are the ideas and problems that have energized us as students, teachers, scholars, and practitioners of economic geography? How have the ideas and problems themselves changed (or not), and, for those questions that have persisted, how has our thinking about them changed?

Each ‘ism’ over-simplifies a diverse group of scholars who see themselves as engaged in a more-or-less common sub-project of economic geography. Indeed, every really existing research project inevitably draws from more than one tradition, even when the researcher claims otherwise. Figure 1 visualizes these overlaps. Crudely summarized, three distinct philosophical ideal types can be identified (the apexes), each of which has been at the center of at least one ‘revolution’ in economic geography since the 1950s.

This diversification reflects the synthetic and trans-disciplinary nature of Geography itself, which in the case of economic geography implies taking seriously the relations between economic and other social and bio-physical processes, rather than analyzing the economic as either separable from or foundational to such other processes. Such diversity is to be celebrated, not bemoaned. ’ Diversity is not necessarily regarded as a strength, however. Mainstream economics has built its reputation by excluding heterodox approaches (to the point where even Krugman’s work is denigrated as insufficiently mainstream).
