FINANCING URBAN FUNCTIONS AND SERVICES

THERE ARE THREE ECONOMIC VARIABLES WHICH GENERATE SUBSTANSTIAL COSTS AS WELL AS BENEFITS, AND WHICH NEED TO BE CAREFULLY CONSIDERED TO INSURE AN EFFICIENT URBAN AREA. THESE KEY VARIABLES ARE LAND USE PLANNING AND LAND MARKET OPERATION, URBAN TRANSPORT SYSTEMS AND SOCIAL OVERHEAD CAPITAL FACILITIES SUCH AS WATER SUPPLIES, SCHOOLS, PUBLIC UTILITIES ETC. THIS PAPER CONCENTRATES ON THE SECOND AND THIRD OF THESE QUESTIONS, WHILE TAKING UP IN TURN THE THEORETICAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH PROVIDING THE SOCIAL OVERHEAD FACILITIES IN AN URBAN AREA. IT ALSO PRESENTS SOME OF THE EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE ON THE SUBURBAN-URBAN RELATIONSHIPS, THE INFRA-URBAN INDUSTRY PROBLEMS, AND THE PATTERNS OF LOCAL GOVERNMENTAL REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES. /AUTHOR/
