Market Urbanism

What is Market Urbanism?

Market Urbanism is the cross between free-market policy and urban issues. Rooted from the classical liberal economic tradition, the theory calls for private-sector actions that create organic growth and voluntary exchange within cities, rather than ones enforced by government bureaucracy.

Market Urbanists believe that were this model tried in cities, it would produce cheaper housing, faster transport, improved public services and better quality of life. For a more detailed breakdown of the Market Urbanist position on various issues, visit the page "What Is Market Urbanism?"
