The geographic distribution of resources and potential for development is only minimally determined by exogenous factors (raw materials, natural advantages). To a much larger extent, it results from past and recent historical factors: human capital, social fixed capital, the fertility of the land (due to the work of man) and accessibility (measured as the weighted distance from the main centres of production and consumption).
