A SURVEY OF URBAN ECONOMICS

A large literature has grown up in urban economics in the last decade. It can be broadly classified into: 1) studies of the growth, composition (industry and population), and spatial form of urbanized areas; and 2) analyses of problems such as congestion, discrimination in housing and employment, and the fiscal difficulties of cities. This paper concentrates on the former, where the contributions from other disciplines have been as important as those from economics. Part One of the paper deals with models of growth and intra-urban land use. Part Two is devoted to urban simulation and efforts to build large scale statistical models for analyzing, among other things, the impact of alternative government policies on patterns of urban development.
