COMM 306 - Urban Land Economics
Urban economics examines various urban issues from the economic perspective. These issues concern urban land and housing market, urban transportation, urban crime, urban sprawl, land use policies, etc, and we study them as social equilibria arising from individual agent’s profit or utility maximizing behavior.
The objectives of this course are to:
- provide students clearer understanding of traditional urban issues.
- provide a logical framework for analyzing new issues students may come across in the future.
- make students more familiar with related data source and computer programs to analyze them.
