Advances in Urban Economics
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information

Urban economics is broadly the economic study of urban areas; as such, it involves using the tools of economics to analyze urban issues such as crime, education, public transit, housing, and local government finance. More narrowly, it is a branch of microeconomics that studies urban spatial structure and the location of households and firms.


In the present book, twelve typical literatures about Urban Economics published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on urban ecology, urban education, urban design, housing and public policy, land use, etc. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in urban economics as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
