Editorial Reviews


"Down's presents a wealth of data and scholarship that will be invaluable to all students of urban issues." — Journal of Economic Literature

" Reading Downs on urban problems is like seeing a lawn mower operate for the first time, when you have been trimming the grass with a pair of scissors. He offers pithy summaries of the work of others, offers his own ideas, and uses a hard-headed economic perspective to assess alternatives. " — Planning

" Provocative, probing, philosophical, policy driven--Tony Downs poignantly defines a future vision for America's building environment." —Rep. Marcy Kaptur

From the Back Cover

In this timely book, Anthony Downs presents shrewd, economically sound alternative strategies to guide the development of America's metropolitan areas without increasing traffic congestion and air pollution, endlessly raising taxes, or sacrificing the availability of affordable housing.
