16235 Urban Economics6cp
Requisite(s): 16633 Microeconomics for Property
This is a core subject that examines the economics of cities and regions. Through a series of lectures and debates, this subject helps students to understand and critically apply core concepts, theories, and tools to urban development processes and urban policy making within the built environment. While emphasising economic forces that shape the urban experience, it realises that the urban economy is part of the national and global world system and acknowledges the interconnections between urban, rural, and peri-urban spaces. The 'economic' in urban economics is understood as enmeshed in complex social and environmental experiences. Themes covered include agglomeration economies, the urban and spatial structure of economic development, and how economic surplus generated in the urbanisation process is distributed, urban sustainable development, and urban poverty.
