Two By Lewyn

Michael Lewyn (Florida Coastal), an occasional guest blogger here and the unquestioned King of Sprawl, has posted two new papers on SSRN.  The first is titled Five Myths About Sprawl:

This review of Robert Bruegmann's book, Sprawl: a compact history, suggests that Bruegmann overestimates the universality of sprawl, by overlooking the differences between pedestrian-friendly cities with some sprawling development and cities in which automobile-dependent sprawl is the only choice available to most consumers. In addition, Bruegmann understates the harmful social effects of sprawl, especially the effect of automobile-dependent development upon nondrivers.

The second is called Planners Gone Wild:  The Overregulation of Parking, which reviews Donald Shoup's book The High Cost of Free Parking.
