''Launhardt's early contributions to the spatial monopoly model''
( 2008, Vol. 2 No.1 )
This paper shows that an early appearance of the formal spatial monopoly model is in Chapter 27 of Launhardt's 1985 book, Mathematical Principles of Economics (1993). The well-known spatial monopoly model developed by the pioneering works of Beckmann (1968, pp. 32-33, p. 51) and Greenhut and Ohta (1975, pp. 23-27) was anticipated by Launhardt. Launhardt should be given credit for it.
