Catanese addresses the central issue of planning: implementation. He argues that while there are many planning methods and techniques of varying degrees of relevance and feasibility, planning — and the implementation of plans — is entirely dependent on the political context and environment in which it is implemented. Drawing on his extensive work and research in cities, Catanese maintains that the traditional divergence between public and private goals in urban and regional development is being reduced as planners, politicians, and business leaders have become more willing to work with one another in pursuit of their dreams.
