Check out this great review of the book that shares this blog’s name, The Economics of Place. The review is from good the people at Better! Cities & Towns, a outstanding resource for those interested in urbanism.

If you haven’t already read the book, you may want to order a copy. The book has nine distinct and amazing authors who cover a variety of topics associated with good placemaking.
