An Economic Geography of the United States: From Commutes to Megaregions

Topics: Transportation, Critical Infrastructure Theory, Policy and Practice,

This paper uses two different quantitative methods to analyze the phenomenon of ‘megaregions’ centered around major metropolitan areas, which the authors contend has been taken for granted. They work with 4,000,000 commuter flows and compare the two mathematical methods with ‘common sense’ interpretations to make sense of this new division of space and geography.
