No past background knowledge is required. This Masterclass will benefit anyone who has completed an Introduction to Behavioural Economics course OR has a general interest in gaining practical tools for behavioural innovations.
This course is a rapid introduction to the economics of cities, providing a theoretical understanding of how residents, workers, developers and government interact to shape urban form. The course will introduce the concept of a competitive urban spatial equilibrium under a monocentric model of urban form, and gradually introduce greater complexity. The motivation is to help provide a theoretical understanding of why our cities look the way they do and interrogate key implications of these economic models for urban features including housing affordability, congestion and impacts of regulation.
