Diversified Urbanization: The Case of C

Madio Fall

Diversified Urbanization: The Case of C by Madio FallCôte d'Ivoire seeks a development strategy to reach middle-income status-a challenge that would require annual growth rates averaging 10 percent over the next 13 years. Global experience of both developed and emerging economies shows that GDP per capita rises with increased urbanization. However, Côte d'Ivoire's economy is underperforming relative to its level of urbanization. The country's urbanization has been negatively correlated with income per capita since the late 1970s, and poverty has been increasing. Rather than consider development of cities individually, successful urbanization...

Crisis and Migration: Implications of the Eurozone Crisis for Perceptions, Politics, and Policies of Migration

Pieter Bevelander

Crisis and Migration: Implications of the Eurozone Crisis for Perceptions, Politics, and Policies of Migration by Pieter BevelanderThe seemingly perennial Eurozone crisis has been front-page news for several years now, but some aspects do not make the media coverage. In Crisis and Migration attention is geared away from the crisis as a protracted but acute phenomenon that will eventually come to pass. Instead, the contributors pose the possibility that the crisis may be a symptom of a long-term, chronic decline of the European Union in relation to other parts of the world. The authors analyze the current economic situation and its effects and implications on migration and migration policy. Alongside the more senior authors,...

Mexico Urbanization Review: Managing Spatial Growth for Productive and Livable Cities in Mexico

Yoonhee Kim

Mexico Urbanization Review: Managing Spatial Growth for Productive and Livable Cities in Mexico by Yoonhee KimDespite impressive economic growth and increasing prosperity, cities in Mexico do not seem to have fully captured the benefits of urban agglomeration, in part because of rapid and uncoordinated urban growth. Recent expansion of many Mexican cities has been distant, disconnected, and dispersed, driven mainly by large single-use housing developments on the outskirts of cities. The lack of a coordinated approach to urban development has hindered the ability of cities in Mexico to boost economic growth and foster inclusive development. It also has created a fissure between new housing developments...

Putin Country by Anne Garrels | Summary & Analysis

Preview:
Putin Country is an account of foreign correspondent Anne Garrels??s travels in, and study of, Chelyabinsk, Russia. Chelyabinsk is a region of south central Russia located at the southern end of the Ural mountain chain, on the border of Europe and Asia.

Leveraging Urbanization in South Asia: Managing Spatial Transformation for Prosperity and Livability

Peter Ellis & Mark Roberts

Leveraging Urbanization in South Asia: Managing Spatial Transformation for Prosperity and Livability by Peter Ellis & Mark RobertsThe number of people in South Asia's cities rose by 130 million between 2000 and 2011--more than the entire population of Japan. This was linked to an improvement in productivity and a reduction in the incidence of extreme poverty. But the region's cities have struggled to cope with the pressure of population growth on land, housing, infrastructure, basic services, and the environment. As a result, urbanization in South Asia remains underleveraged in its ability to deliver widespread improvements in both prosperity and livability. Leveraging Urbanization in South Asia is about the state of South...

Derailed by Bankruptcy: Life after the Reading Railroad

Howard H. Lewis

Derailed by Bankruptcy: Life after the Reading Railroad by Howard H. LewisWhat happened when the US government stopped investing in railroads and started investing in highways and air travel? By the late 1970s, six major eastern railroads had declared bankruptcy. Although he didn't like trains, Howard H. Lewis became the primary lawyer for the Reading Railroad during its legendary bankruptcy case. Here, Lewis provides a frank account of the high-intensity litigation and courtroom battles over the US government's proposal to form Conrail out of the six bankrupt railroads, which meant taking the Reading's property, leaving the railroad to prove its worth. After five...

Handbook of Public Economics

Alan J. Auerbach

Handbook of Public Economics by Alan J. Auerbach

In the Handbook of Public Economics, vol. 5, top scholars provide context and order to new research about mechanisms that underlie both public finance theories and applications. These fundamental subjects follow the recent, steady movement away from rational decision-making and toward more personalized approaches to tax generation and expenditure, especially in terms of the use of psychological methods and financial incentives. Closely scrutinized subjects include new research in empirical (instead of theoretical) public finance, the methods for measuring taxes (both in revenue generation and...

Happy City: Transforming Our Lives Through Urban Design

Charles Montgomery

Happy City: Transforming Our Lives Through Urban Design by Charles Montgomery

A globe-trotting, eye-opening exploration of how cities can--and do--make us happier people

Charles Montgomery's Happy City will revolutionize the way we think about urban life.

After decades of unchecked sprawl, more people than ever are moving back to the city. Dense urban living has been prescribed as a panacea for the environmental and resource crises of our time. But is it better or worse for our happiness? Are subways, sidewalks, and tower dwelling an improvement on the car-dependence of sprawl?

The award-winning journalist Charles Montgomery finds answers to such questions at the intersection...

Handbook of Regional and Urban Economics SET

Gilles Duranton

Handbook of Regional and Urban Economics SET by Gilles Duranton

Developments in methodologies, agglomeration, and a range of applied issues have characterized recent advances in regional and urban studies. Volume 5 concentrates on these developments while treating traditional subjects such as housing, the costs and benefits of cities, and policy issues beyond regional inequalities. Contributors make a habit of combining theory and empirics in each chapter, guiding research amid a trend in applied economics towards structural and quasi-experimental approaches. Clearly distinguished from the New Economic Geography covered by Volume 4, these articles feature...
