“Location, location and location…. The three most important attributes of any piece of real estate in establishing its worth also loom large in the history and potential of a nation.”


LOCATION—TRANSPORTATION AND CIVILIZATIONS

Throughout history civilizations have been constrained and/or defined by their transportation infrastructures. For this reason most population centers first grew along rivers and seacoasts. With the coming of the Industrial Age, manufacturing complexes and the accompanying population centers sprang up along the full lines of interior rivers and streams. So long as the world's population could be contained and sustained in these regions, the traditional means of surface transportation, boat and roads, were adequate to service these cities. As man's knowledge of the world expanded and vital natural resources were discovered in far away corners of the world, a patchwork of transportation nets was put into place. Much of the impetus for canals and railways in the 19th century came from this dynamic. In the 20th century, particularly after the mass production of the internal combustion engine, national highway systems sprang up in the form of European autobahns, British motorways, and American interstate highways. Following the Second World War, commercial aviation moved to the fore and a system of international airways and airports helped shrink the globe.
