I am grateful to the Taubman Center for State and Local Government for financial support. Kristina Tobio provided excellent research assistance. This essay was written for an edited multi-disciplinary volume on how different disciplines approach cities and it is meant to give non-economists a sense of the economic approach to cities. The views expressed herein are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
