Major Job-Providing Organizations and Systems of Cities, Resource Paper No. 27.
Pred, Allan R.
This resource paper is concerned with the trend toward concentration of economic power in the hands of major job-providing organizations and the trend of occupational shifts occurring within the structure of advanced economies. It is part of a series designed to supplement existing texts and to fill a gap between research and accessible materials in geography. Topics of the five chapters include the general characteristics of major job-providing organizations, patterns of organizational headquarters and location, major job-providing organizations and interdependence within systems of cities, major job-providing organizations and the growth and development of advanced systems of cities, and problems of urban and regional development in relation to major job-providing organizations. A bibliography is included. (Author/KSM)
