Time and narrative in economic geography

M Curry, T Barnes

Received 22 December 1986; in revised form 3 April 1987

Abstract. There are two types of dynamic models found within economic geography -- the statistical and the causal. Both rest on a view of time which is based upon chronology and sequence. It is argued, however, that a chronological and sequential view of time is inadequate to comprehend the nature of economic behaviour, Instead, it is suggested that economic geographers begin thinking about time from the perspective of narrative.
