La adaptación tecnológica como factor de localización industrial. Una revisión de las investigaciones sobre la industria de hilados de algodón en Cataluña (1772-1885)
This article examines, through the analysis of the cotton spinning industry in Catalonia, the role of technological change in corporate strategies for industrial location in the first stage of the industrialisation process. It highlights the lack of consistency in the relation between territory and technology and demonstrates the influence that both the technological system adopted and the territorial features exert on the industrial location decision-making process. Through the review of the most recent bibliography, the article establishes that the location of the cotton spinning industry in Catalonia was determined by the existence of a pre-established industrial framework and by the relative change in the cost that factors such as labour, energy and transport experienced due to the introduction of foreign technology.
