Economic geography is the subfield of human geography which studies economic activity and factors affecting it. It can also be considered a subfield or method in economics.[1] There are four branches of economic geography.

Economic geography takes a variety of approaches to many different topics, including the location of industries, economies of agglomeration (also known as "linkages"), transportation, international trade, development, real estate, gentrification, ethnic economies, gendered economies, core-periphery theory, the economics of urban form, the relationship between the environment and the economy (tying into a long history of geographers studying culture-environment interaction), and globalization.
