Economic context of Politics and Planning
Economic context: physical planning as a tool of the public policy to serve economic growth in favour of capitalists. Physical planning is connected with “economic planning” which is concerned with the same issue of distribution of goods, including land, and services and with the question of who controls what? Which leads to the scope of control, power relations, the role of the state and society agencies, and decision-making arena 

Issue of industrial location has been usually managed by economic incentives (e.g. tax exemptions, land prices, credit facilities, and low infrastructure tariffs) to attract foreign capitals to be invested in industry targeting specific cities, regions, and sites within cities (UNIDO 1978 pp.14-15). As a consequence, inadequate industrial location control and a spontaneous industrial development occurred.
