Abstract: This paper reviews the main concepts on economic geography developed by Paul Krugman since the 1980s. Special attentions are given to three areas of his contributions: new trade theory, criticism on the five traditions of economic geography and spatial models of economic development. Finally, some comparisons are provided between Krugman’s ideas and the conventional economic geography.
