Abstract

This paper attempts to establish a theoretical foundation for regional policy. While mainstream economics tends to create a theory of even development, equilibrium, and market-induced harmony, this paper focuses on economic activities being qualitatively different as carriers of economic growth, and on the criteria for finding these qualitative differences. Establishing four geographical economies in the German tradition - household economy, town /regional economy, national economy, and global economy - the dynamic relationships between these levels of economic geography and the qualitative aspects of different economic activities are used in explaining the cumulative causations of regional growth or their absence.
