aim

Most economic activities such as production, consumption and innovation take place in urban areas, despite the relatively high location costs. Why is this the case, and how does this affect the economic behaviour of firms and households? This course in Urban Economics addresses these and related questions, and studies the relation between urban space and economics. How does the factor (urban) space affect the behaviour of firms and households? And reversely, which implications result from such behaviour for the spatial development of cities? Such insights are developed both through studying theoretical backgrounds and by considering practical examples of the issues at hand.

content

One of the central topics in this course is the location behaviour of firms. How can a firm increase its profits by choosing a more appropriate location? Why are so many firms interested in expensive locations at, for example, the Amsterdam South Axis? Why do for example computer and fashion shops often cluster in space, while bakers are typically dispersed over a city? Will the advent of e-commerce cause firms to leave crowded and expensive cities? For households, comparable questions arise. Why are certain social and ethnic groups often clustered in space, and is this desirable? How do location choices of firms and households interact?

The aggregate result of these choices, in terms of the development of land use in modern cities, will also be addressed, taking into account the role of land prices and transport costs. Topics of interest include the economic backgrounds and consequences of suburbanization, the rise of urban 'sub-centres', and the rise of so-called 'network cities', as witnessed world-wide (and in The Netherlands alike).

We will also look at interdependencies between cities, in terms of their economic dynamics and functional development. Why and how do cities specialize, why does nearly every country have a few big cities and many smaller towns and villages, and are such arrangements economically desirable?

Finally, some typically urban problems will be addressed from the economic viewpoint, such as segregation, poverty and criminality.

The course comprises 12 lectures of two hours each. Most of these are organized such that, apart from the teacher's explanation of the essential material, students will make small exercises so as to better comprehend the material. In addition, two thematic lectures are included, in which assignments will be discussed.
