Urban deals in comparative perspective

Abstract

Even if a newly integrated global economy has produced similar restructuring challenges across nations and the localities within them, there can still be variations across places in social and distributive outcomes of economic growth. In the United States signs of these variations have so far stemmed from, among other factors, the power of local governments to create exactions out of the land development process; in other societies, variation is produced both at the national and local levels by other types of political forces, such as the ongoing power of left parties. In this chapter, I illustrate how, both among countries and among cities within countries, variation and differentiation rooted in political response remain possible even under global restructurmg.
