Christaller's Central Place Postulates: A Commentary
The purpose of this paper is to trace back and comment on five postulates of W. Christaller's (1933, 1966) central place theory: the homogeneity of geographical space, economic rationality of agents, existence of scale economies, existence of agglomeration economies, and interdependence between goods. The conclusion of the discussion is that the lack of an explicit axiomatic approach prevents the theory from being consistent and fully immune to empirically based puzzling comments.
