Urban Economic Policy

2540 [CRN: 24652]

This course will introduce students to the economic analysis of urban policy. We will use economic theory to analyze why cities exist, where they develop, how they grow, and how activities are spatially arranged within urban areas. As we ask each of these questions, we will examine how public policy can influence the outcome and review empirical evidence. As time allows, we will also examine the economics of poverty, housing, and other issues within the urban context. Prerequisite: PPAI 2010 or instructor permission.
