Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you want to read some of the most outstanding work of an economist dealing with urban economics, I recommend this book. Unfortunately, it also reveals a serious limitation of academic urban economics: it is focused on economic optimization per se, not on the optimization of the political, sociological or cultural objectives of most urban planning, or on what pursuing those non-economic objectives might cost in strictly economic terms.

Hugh Schwartz, author of a book on Curitiba, currently working on a mss, Incorporating Economics into Urban Planning
