As these were all rather recent examples the question may arise whether economic activity was always unevenly distributed. ” The answer is “yes” in the sense that cities, for example, began to emerge at the time of the Neolithic revolution as a consequence of an increase in agricultural surplus; see Huriot and Thisse (2000).

As we shall see, the pressure of globalization has rapidly changed the structure of doing business, as measured by the value chain, in this high-tech industry dominated by multinationals (see chapter 8). 6 gives a simplified picture of the main steps in the HDD value chain, the sequence and range of activities that go into making a final product. 5 Producers locate the the many discrete steps in the value chain around the world for various reasons.
