dc.description.abstract
The repeated interactions and exchanges in formal and informal networks, e.g. family, firms, associations, friendship circles, regulars of a bar, are central to our daily life. There is no reason to assume, that the geography of the members of the networks, to which one belongs, has not been affected by the seminal drop in transport and telecommunication costs since 1950. The paper will develop a conceptualisation of the dynamics of the interaction between the geographies of the social networks and of activity space growth. Against this background, more detailed, testable hypotheses about the change of the geographies, of the contact intensity distributions and numbers of contacts will be derived. The final section will discuss the impact of the hypotheses, if found to be true, on both transport modelling and transport policy. Key expected effects are indeed increases in the human activity spaces, human welfare, but combined with a loss of local trusts, i.e. a localised anomie.
