Description Urban transportation economics and Canadian public polciy EPUB

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 specifically, it is a branch of microeconomics that studies urban spatial structure and the location of households and firms (Quigley ).

Introduction to Urban Economics offers a complete and self-contained coverage of urban economics. This book analyzes the economic rationale and growth and development of cities, theory and empirical analysis of urban markets, and problems and policies of urban economies.

This text is divided into inter- and intra-urban Edition: 1. URBAN TRANSPORT ECONOMICS. While the book attempts to provide an understanding of urban transport economics, it also considers the effects of social, political and institutional constraints.
