Talk:Regional science

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

These two paragraphs in the Criticisms section appear to be original research and should probably be dropped:

Perhaps part of the decline in interest from practitioners in planning and geography may be due to the rise of geographic information systems and other readily used statistical and modeling software, which have allowed predictive modeling and analysis to be done more efficiently and by non-specialists. In fact, such easy quantification apparently has induced somewhat of a reactionary response among some in academic geography away from the quantitative analysis of human activities as an end in itself — or as a guide to planners or corporations.[citation needed]
The dawning of globalization and the internet age has rendered one core technique of regional science, location theory, less applicable - since a number of social activities require no "optimal spatial location" whatsoever. Then again, the unification of Europe and the increased internationalization of the world's economic, social, and political realms has generated more interest in the study of regional, as opposed to national, phenomena.

original research comment by Anthon.Eff[edit]

Anton.Eff it looks like something from Trevor Barnes. I added the last sentence merely because this is what motivated Paul Krugman's work in the area and the rest of the stuff on this page at the time was sodown on regional sciennce that I just felt a need to end the whole thing on an upbeat note. As far as I am concerned, however, it could all be struck.
