Assorted Links

  1. Meet The Economic Complexity Observatory - a multidisciplinary effort between the Macro Connections group at the MIT Media Lab and the Center for International Development at Harvard University.

  2. Are you looking for short term courses or seminars? The Lincoln Institute has just published its annual program for the new academic year 2011-2012.

  3. Excellent piece by Ryan Avent in the NYTimes:One Path to Better Jobs: More Density in Cities (via MR)

  4. All the papers published since 1997 at the Journal of Public Transportation are now available on line (I'm not sure but almost all articles are written in Portuguese). This journal is promoted by the ANTP - National Public Transportation Association (an NGO in Brazil).

  5. The 'flight to the suburbs' debate in the US: Stephen Von Worley did a very good job to map the change in population density from 2000 to 2010 (census tract level) - Growth Rings 1 and 2.
