In episode 6 of the Market Urbanism podcast, we talk about the overstretched nature of American infrastructure, and what mechanisms could be used to better fund it. In segment 1, we discuss this so-called “growth Ponzi Scheme” with Charles Marohn, founder of Strong Towns. In segment 2, we discuss how it might be addressed through value capture mechanisms, with Rick Rybeck, founder of the land-use consultancy Just Economics.
Market Urbanism is the cross between free-market policies and urban issues. Market Urbanists believe that if cities were liberalized, they would provide cheaper housing, faster transportation, enhanced public services, and a better quality of life.
