It is the purpose of this paper to examine both the causes and effects of plant closings. The first several chapters will deal with the incidence and causes of closings while the later chapters will focus on the detrimental impacts and possible solutions. To truly understand the problem of plant closings and relocations, however, one should be at least somewhat familiar with location theory, as presented by proponents of an unrestricted free market. Therefore, a brief synopsis of this theory follows. (Chapter 8 contains a critique of this theory.)If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
