The Economic Geography school of thought believes that a country's economic prosperity is fundamentally defined by its geography. In this section we examine whether the country is easy to navigate by rivers (which is the cheapest form of transportation) or is mountainous and requires time and money to be spent on building roads and rivers. Access to the sea is a vital requirement for efficient international trade relations. According to this analysis, it is natural that the United States should be the world's dominant economy, since it has vast arable land connected by the world's most extensive river networks, and bordered by the world's two major oceans. This section should be read in conjunction with the Natural Resources section.
