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
