Résumé

Why do some nations exhibit higher levels of spatial inequality, even at comparable levels of development? This paper proposes a simple theory, using two pieces of information: 1) The location of the nation’s largest city or cities; 2) The location of the nation’s chief trading partners. These determine, it is argued, which regions are poorer and which richer, and also the size of the periphery: regions with per capita incomes systematically below the national average. Spatial inequality is examined for EU nations and Canada and Mexico. The greater the spatial overlap between national and continental forces of agglomeration, the smaller the area with a potential for generating high incomes and the greater the probability of high extreme values within any nation.
