The goal of this paper is to study economic self- organization on a two-dimensional surface, here with quasi-periodic spatial dynamics. The recent literature on economic geography studies economic self-organization in space. The standard approach to the modelling of space is based on assuming that space can be modelled as a one-dimensional system, often locations arrayed on a circle. This paper extends the study of self-organisation to two spatial dimensions. The main result is that the discretisation of the space has a qualitative impact on the formation of regions.
