Measuring Up Cities

In 1984, Jane Jacobs published Cities and the Wealth of Nations. Although primarily a journalist, Jacobs produced a penetrating critique of economists mistakenly using nations as their unit of analysis when, she contended, cities are the true generators of wealth. But even economists who agree with Jacobs have struggled with cities as units of analysis. This symposium will present contributions from those who study cities to define them, to specify the methodological problems, and to suggest new analytical tools and techniques.
