9780071086684: Urban Economics, 8th Edition

The Seventh edition of Urban Economics continues to be the market leading textbook due to its thorough content and concise writing style. The new edition continues to cover urban economics as the discipline that lies at the intersection of geography and economics. Urban Economics incorporates the remarkable progress in the field of urban economics from the last fifteen years. It also explores the location decisions of utility-maximizing households and profit-maximizing firms, and it shows how these decisions cause the formation of cities of different size and shape.

The framework of this edition continues to be divided into six sections:

-Part I explains why cities exist and what causes hem to grow or shrink

-Part II examines the market forces that shape cities and the role of government in determining land-use patterns

-Part III looks at the urban transportation system

-Part IV uses a model of the rational criminal to explore the causes of urban crime and its spatial consequences

-Part V explains the unique features of the housing market and examines the effects of government housing policies

-Part VI explains the rationale for our fragmented system of local government and explores the responses of local governments to intergovernmental grants and the responses of taxpayers to local taxes.

Product Description:

Over the course of two decades, Urban Economics has achieved a worldwide audience, and has been translated into Chinese, Greek, Russia, and Korean. Like the seven previous editions, this edition provides a clear and concise presentation of the economic forces that: (a) cause the development of cities; (b) determine the spatial form of cities; (c) cause urban economies to grow or shrink; (d) generate urban problems such as poverty, crime, and congestion; (e) make the market for urban housing unique; and (f) shape the tax and spending policies of local government. In addition to developing the basic concepts of urban economics, the book uses economic analysis to evaluate the merits of policies designed to address our most vexing urban problems. The text is designed for use in undergraduate courses in urban economics andurban affairs. It could also be used for graduate courses in urban planning, publicpolicy, and public administration. All of the economic concepts used in the book arecovered in the typical intermediate microeconomics course, so students who havecompleted such a course will be able to move through the book at a rapid pace.
