Geographical Dimensions of the Service Economy
Back to Industrialization and Economic Development

The areas of industries were the only sites for deindustrialization, and at the global scale the wealthier industrial regions were the most successful by establishing a postindustrial service economy. Mechanization and innovative production brought the core industrial regions back into dominance. Eastern Asia, western Russia and Ukraine, Western Europe, and North America account for 75% of the world's output of manufactured goods. The most famous industrial region in the U.S. is the Sunbelt which is found in the southern region. The high tech and financial industries changes the economy and landscape of the Sunbelt like the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. Market accessibility is most relevant for the service economy, but the technology advsncement in telecommunications has market accessibility less important.
