Handbook of Regional and Urban Economics : Volume 5A Hardback


Developments in methodologies, agglomeration, and a range of applied issues have characterized recent advances in regional and urban studies.

Volume 5 concentrates on these developments while treating traditional subjects such as housing, the costs and benefits of cities, and policy issues beyond regional inequalities.

Contributors make a habit of combining theory and empirics in each chapter, guiding research amid a trend in applied economics towards structural and quasi-experimental approaches.

Clearly distinguished from the New Economic Geography covered by Volume 4, these articles feature an international approach that positions recent advances within the discipline of economics and society at large.
