ECO 334K • Urban Economics
9:30 AM-11:00 AM
In this course we are concerned with the internal workings of cities and the role of cities in the larger economy. Using micro economic theory, we will be examining questions like: Why do high income individuals live in central Paris, but low income individuals live in central Detroit? How does this influence the economy of a city? What affect has the automobile and public transportation had on our urban economy? Why do developed economy systems of cities look different than those of less developed economies?
