This work offers a non-technical evaluation of recent economic thinking on the nexus between local land use and tax policies. Coverage is given of the literature on theoretical controversies; and research is presented on the impact of growth on tax burdens, metropolitcan tax-base sharing, and other matters, including the incidence of impact fees and the shift to land value taxation in urban areas.;The book raises provocative questions concerning conventional wisdom in fiscla policy. It should be of use to economists and students concerned with urban issues and local public finance, as well as to planners and policy makers.
