title = "Introduction",
abstract = "Whatever type of human and economic activity we study, we find that it is not evenly spread out in space, but instead concentrated to a rather limited number of countries, regions and cities. What in particular is noticeable is that certain places, typically large city regions, host a large share of the wealth and knowledge generated in the modern world. Despite what we can read in the popular press that distance doesn’t matter in a world with container and air transport and the Internet, the reality is that distance matters as much as or perhaps even more than in earlier times.",
