Urban and Regional Studies

Topics of research in this area have included state economic development, ways to nurture and reward entrepreneurial innovation, the determinants of industry location, and city growth, as well as the impact of mortgage borrowing constraints on homeownership opportunities. Support for these studies has come from the Kauffman Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Urban Institute, and other sources.
