A theory of urban decline : economy, demography and political elites

Special issue : European cities : growth and decline

Auteur :
FRIEDRICHS, J.

Description :
If some large cities in advanced industrialised countries are countinuing to grow, many have experienced decline. To account for the process of decline and its consequences, a general model of urban decline is proposed. It specifies the relationship between employment, population, political elites and urban fiscal revenues. Constructs and propositions are drawn from economic and ecological theorems. Empirical evidence is based on literature predominantly from Germany and the U.S.
