However, there would appear to be more fundamental objections to stochastic models as explanations of the city size distribution. They are not only nihilistic, in the sense that they entirely abstract from economic or social processes; but they also amount to no more than saying, in the end, that the city size distribution is, as it is, because it is. It would appear to be more realistic and no less helpful to "explain" the distribution of city sizes in terms of people's preferences for living in different sized cities.
It would not be very hard to specify a distribution of such preferences that explained the size distribution of cities; although since the existence of such preferences would be as hard to validate as it would be easy to specify, such an explanation would have a similar degree of elegant circularity. 3. Looser definitions of urban hierarchy The extent to which the literature briefly reviewed above has had as its explicit focus explanations not just of why cities are of different sizes but why the distribution of city sizes conforms to a particular form, varies from author to author.
The increasing diversification of urban economies as city size increases is an idea that goes a long way back in the literature. Clark (1945) appears to have been the first to have taken a systematic interest. Although BegoviC (1992) does not develop an explicit model, he does provide empirical evidence that not only did economic diversification increase with city size in the former Yugoslavia but as city size increased, the share of manufacturing in total employment significantly decreased, while that of most services, especially business and technical services and wholesaling, significantly increased.
