Michael Lewyn: Government Intervention and Suburban Sprawl: The Case for Market Urbanism

Michael Lewyn (Touro) has just published Government Intervention and Suburban Sprawl: The Case for Market Urbanism.  Here is the abstract:

This book shows how suburban sprawl is at least partially a consequence of government spending and regulation, and suggests anti-sprawl policies that can make government smaller and/or less intrusive. 
 
Thus, the book responds to the widely held view that automobile-dependent suburban development (also known as “suburban sprawl”) is a natural result of the free market and of affluence, and accordingly cannot be altered without massive government regulation.
