Readings in Urban Economics: Issues and Public Policy gathers popular press articles, reviews of applied economics literature, and regression-based empirical studies to examine pressing public policy issues in urban areas. The readings extend beyond textbook economic theory and allow for a more in-depth and real-world analysis of a multitude of twenty-first-century urban concerns:

  • Urban growth and urban sprawl.

  • Housing.

  • Economic development incentives.

  • Crime.

  • Race, employment, and poverty.

  • Transportation.

  • Public primary and secondary education.

  • Local government.

Advanced undergraduates and graduates studying urban and/or regional economics, policy, studies, affairs, and planning - as well as urban academics, practitioners, policymakers, and planners - will appreciate the editorial framework of introduction, discussion questions, samples from selected further readings, and an appendix that conveniently lists pertinent journals in applied and policy-oriented urban economics and their websites.
