By highlighting empirical studies from international regions to emphasize theoretical discussions, Regional and Urban Economics and Economic Development encourages students to think further about the subject and to analyze specific areas through suggested research assignments. This textbook introduces spatial economics and location theory, distinguishing between shopping models and shipping models. From this foundation, it analyzes regional growth and development models and policy as well as presents the background of urban economics via land rent, land use patterns, and effects of attempts to control land uses. This book also investigates local public finance and policy analysis to ameliorate urban problems.
