Recent Developments in Urban and Regional Economicsby Paul C. Cheshire, Gilles Duranton
Pub. Date: 02/28/2005
Publisher: Elgar, Edward Publishing, Inc.
These 28 articles, all published in the last dozen years, address contributors' research in spatial economics. Topics of articles on theoretical and empirical analyses of city structure include the "stochastic" city, why central Paris is rich and central Detroit is poor, wage gradients, urban sprawl, and the role of the suburbs. Topics on systems of cities include diversity and specialization and the influence of the "power couple." Those on the empirical side of agglomeration and growth include studies of various countries and regions. Four articles introduce the new economic geography, and the four articles on public finance and policy describe local as well as federal issues. Articles are reproduced in their original format.
