Continue to explore what I call the Territorial Political Economy through the recovery of institutional authors such as T. R. Ely or Henri George
The Political Economy corresponds to a theoretical-methodological matrix common to several of the researchers of the Center of Investigation D'C, namely of the economists; it is also important to highlight the centrality of the territory in the investigation of D'C since it corresponds to one of the research lines of the Center. These two aspects constitute a situation of 'natural' registration of the Political Economy of the Territory in the activity of the Center in the double register of continuity and innovation: the continuity of a thematic line (Territory) and innovation associated with the design of a Territorial Political Economy since it does not exist as such in the Center's investigation.
