The death of distance and the rise of cities

Glaeser gave this lecture on November 13, 2008, at LSE. This event marked the launch of the Spatial Economics Research Centre.

He starts talking about this apparent paradox "The death of distance and the rise of cities" (audio only). In this lecture he tackles regional policy and declining cities, urban sprawl, urban environment and gas emissions, density, affordable housing and all other trending topics in urban studies you should be aware of.
