Abstract

The centrum-peripherical model due to Paul Krugman (1991) with all its merits for grounding the economics crowdings, also scored the appearance of a new field in the economic theory, known as “The New Economic Geography”. There were some criticism which were focused on this matter, such as the simetry of the transport costs for the industrial goods, and the ignoring the transport costs for the agricultural goods. These criticisms could be evaded by improving the model, so as this work tries to do. On the other hand, the achieving of a computational programme is very useful in numerical simulations, necessary for studying the model, taking into account that the model can not be analytically solved.
