Abstract

An essay is presented which compares the development of Portland, Oregon, to the growth of other cities in the state. Particular focus is given to its economic stability and political influence. The changing relationship with Oregon's population, economics and cultural relations in the different parts of the state is examined. In addition, the urban-systems approach shows three equal periods in the state's development with close-in neighbors in modern economic geography.
