Senior Research Scholar Alain Bertaud shares his thoughts on the differing perspectives of urban planners and economists
— June 3, 2019
Excerpt from EconTalk Podcast -- "'f you ask an urban planner, 'What is the optimum size of housing?' this planner will tell you a number--you know, 50 square meters, 60 square meters, something like that. If you ask the same economist will say, 'Well, it all depends.' So, this is really the big difference between planners and economists.'"
