Competitive City, The


This timely and important book, which won a special citation from the American Political Science Association\u2019s Urban Affairs Section for its \u201cmajor theoretical development,\u201d analyzes the effect of competition among suburban communities to attract residents and business with the best public services and the lowest taxes. Using data from a large sample of suburban cities, Mark Schneider offers a theoretical extension of the Tiebout-Peterson approach to understanding public policies and integrates this perspective with recent work on the power of bureaucrats to control budgets.
