A new urban economics blog

A number of reasons motivated me to start this weekly blog.

First and foremost, I wish to communicate with my current and past students of urban economics. This fall semester I returned to teach my introductory urban economics course at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.

Second, the community of urban economists has not been forthcoming. It is not very communicative. Urban topics are not covered extensively in blog world.

Finally, I hope to contribute a somewhat different perspective on urban issues, one influenced by a backdrop of my home in Haifa, Israel.

In many ways this is an experiment. I am not sure whether the sparcity of urban issues blogs does not represent a market test of a lack of interest. I will try to bring here results of recent research and policy discussions.

And so wish me luck....
