Boom Towns presents a bold analysis of the decline of American cities and a guide to restoring their vitality. Stephen J.K. Walters argues that urban leaders must enforce property rights in order to prevent the loss of vital capital - physical, human, and social - that helps cities and their residents to flourish.
Stephen J.K. Walters is Professor of Economics at Loyola University Maryland and a Fellow at the Johns Hopkins Institute for Applied Economics, Global Health, and the Study of Business Enterprise. He has advised aspiring and elected mayors and governors, given expert testimony in antitrust and tort cases, and consulted for diverse clients, ranging from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to major league baseball clubs.
