    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2016; US$ 184.99

  • Time, Space and Capitalby Åke E. Andersson; David Emanuel Andersson

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2017; US$ 40.00

    In this challenging book, the authors demonstrate that economists tend to misunderstand capital. Frank Knight was an exception, as he argued that because all resources are more or less durable and have uncertain future uses they can consequently be classed as capital. Thus, capital rather than labor is the real source of creativity, innovation, and... more...

    With increased awareness of the role of plans in shaping urban and suburban landscapes has come increased criticism of planners and the planning profession.
