How Markets Shape Cities (The MIT Press)
Alain Bertaud - 2018-12-04
Рейтинг Goodreads
This book argues that urban planning can greatly benefit by applying the tools of urban economics to the design of regulations and infrastructure. The author, a renowned urban planner with five decades of urban planning experience in forty cities worldwide, explains how markets provide the indispensable mechanism for cities' development, examines the spatial distribution of land prices and densities, stresses the importance of mobility and affordability, and critiques land use regulations that aim at redesigning existing cities instead of alleviating clear negative externalities. By linking cities' productivity to the size of their labor markets and discussing the new role joint teams of urban planners and economists can play, this book offers valuable insights for anyone interested in the welfare of urban citizens.

@snoble @paulg Started reading this recently, it's great! I'm probably biased because I believe in free markets over central planning, but regardless, I've been really enjoying this book.      источник

@VictorPontis Yeah the central concept of TSG is mind-bending. Have you read the Algorithm Design Manual by @StevenSkiena? Good, complementary book to CLRS. More about how to "think in algorithms" than specific algorithms.      источник
