In these proceedings of the international conference "Land Polices for Urban Development," held June 2006 in Cambridge, Mass., contributors present their research on the impact of policy on housing prices and affordability, real estate investment decisions, finance and urban development patterns. The 15 papers and accompanying commentaries cover the impact of restricting residential construction, the high cost of monopoly in the US and the efficiency and equity of Tiebout's ideas there in terms of taxes as well as services and property, the economics of conservation easements, land values in the US from 1975 to 2005, urban land rents, land value as a tool for financing municipal expenditures, taxation in emerging economies, urban trends in Asia and the UK, hopeful signs of revitalization in the US, and developments such as community land trusts, multiple-home ownership and Brazil's experiments with urban and housing markets.
