Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
In Reconstructing Urban Economics, Franklin Obeng-Odoom challenges the neoclassical economic approach to the study of the inner workings of urban environments. In doing so, he provides a radical reassessment of the built environment and its importance within the capitalist system. Drawing on the work of such pioneering urban economists as D. R. Denman and R. T. Ely,  Obeng-Odoom calls for a more heterodox, transdisciplinary approach, an approach that has the potential to offer a broader, more equitable political economy of the built environment.
 
Covering a number of highly topical and politically charged subjects, including affordable housing, urban poverty, and sustainable living, Reconstructing Urban Economics is the first book to confront mainstream urban economics from within the discipline.
