The Economics of Cities and Suburbs / Edition 1 available in Paperback
Designed to convey the excitement of studying cities while developing a set of formal tools for analyzing their economies. KEY TOPICS: The book attempts to remove the division between “urban” economics and “regional” economics by demonstrating that the traditional intermetropolitan models of specialization and trade can also be extended to intrametropolitan analysis, thus unifying their treatment.
