In the gentrified ghetto

Frictionless cities are the bane of modern living, says Anna Minton

The New Localism: How Cities Can Thrive in the Age of Populism by Bruce Katz and Jeremy Nowak (Brookings Institution, £21.95)

The New Urban Crisis: Gentrification, Housing Bubbles, Growing Inequality, and What We Can Do About it by Richard Florida (Oneworld, £20)

The word “urbanism” first appeared in print in the mid-19th century. But it’s only in recent years that the term has become fashionable. Indeed, it has spawned a new type of professional: the “urbanist.” Defined by the OED as “an expert in urban life or urban areas,” such figures occupy a proliferation of roles in policymaking and academia— roles that have accompanied the boom in regeneration and property development that has characterised cities since the 1990s, especially in the US and the UK.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s May issue: More than a dozen writers critique the current state of economics, suggesting there are still lessons to learn more than a decade on from the financial crash. Howard Reed writes that the ideas we hold about the way economics works need to be ripped up. Ten of the world’s best living economists explain what, in their view, is the single most important lesson economics still has to learn, and Linda Yueh suggests what three of the past masters would think about economics today. Elsewhere in the issue: Vernon Bogdanor outlines why Brexit could cause a constitutional crisis in Britain; Jean H Lee explains why young South Koreans don’t want their country to reunify with their Northern neighbours; Sian Norris writes about the coming battle over abortion and shows where the UK ranks among its European peers; and Sonia Purnell profiles Jacob Rees-Mogg.
