Housing in postwar Canada : demographic change, household formation, and housing demand by John R Miron( )

9 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and held by 1,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1945 and 1981 the Canadian population doubled, while the number of dwellings more than tripled.

He argues that no single explanation adequately reflects the extent of the impact of the demographic trends and the economic changes
House, home, and community : progress in housing Canadians, 1945-1986 by John R Miron( )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph is the result of a project first conceived at Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation in the early 1980s. The idea was to commission a pair of monographs, one on the housing industry (Clayton Research Associates Limited 1988) and the other - this volume - on progress in the housing of Canadians. The purposes of this monograph were: to benchmark the evolution of housing in Canada since 1945, to address important dimensions of the current and future housing situation, to identify housing research issues and priorities in Canada over the mid to long term, and to identify important housing policy issues likely to emerge in Canada over the mid to long term"--Prologue, p. 1

The geography of competition : firms, prices, and localization by John R Miron( )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date, and expert synthesis of location theory. What are the impacts of a firm's geographic location on the locations of customers, suppliers, and competitors in a market economy? How, when, and why does this result in the clustering of firms in space? When and how is society made better or worse off as a result? This book uses dozens of locational models to address aspects of these three questions. Classical location problems considered include Greenhut-Manne, Hitchcock-Koopmans, and Weber-Launhardt. The book reinterprets competitive location theory, focusing on the linkages between Walrasian price equilibrium and the localization of firms. It also demonstrates that competitive location theory offers diverse ideas about the nature of market equilibrium in geographic space and its implications for a broad range of public policies, including free trade, industrial policy, regional development, and investment in infrastructure. With an extensive bibliography and fresh, interdisciplinary approach, the book will be an invaluable reference for academics and researchers with an interest in regional science, economic geography, and urban planning, as well as policy advisors, urban planners, and consultants
The organization of cities : initiative, ordinary life, and the good life by John R Miron( )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and German and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the relationship between the state and economy in the development of cities. It reviews and reinterprets fundamental theoretical models that explain how the operation of markets in equilibrium shapes the scale and organization of the commercial city in a mixed market economy within a liberal state. These models link markets for the factors of production, markets for investment and fixed capital formation, markets for transportation, and markets for exports in equilibrium both within the urban economy and the rest of the world. In each case, the model explains the urban economy by revealing how assumptions about causes and structures lead to predictions about scale and organization outcomes. By simplifying and contrasting these models, this book proposes another interpretation: that governance and the urban economy are outcomes negotiated by political actors motivated by competing notions of commonwealth and the individual desire for wealth and power. The book grounds its analysis in economic history, explaining the rise of commercial cities and the emergence of the urban economy. It then turns to factors of production, export, and factor markets, introducing and parsing the Mills model, breaking it down into its component parts and creating a series of simpler models that can better explain the significance of each economic assumption. Simplified models are also presented for real estate and fixed capital investment markets, transportation, and land use planning. The book concludes with a discussion of linear programming and the Herbert- Stevens and the Ripper-Varaiya models. A fresh presentation of the theories behind urban economics, this book emphasizes the links between state and economy and challenges the reader to see its theories in a new light. As such, this book will be of interest to scholars, students, and practitioners of economics, public policy, public administration, urban policy, and city and urban planning.>

The demand for rental housing : a review of theory and empirical evidence by John R Miron( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 1983 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Residential rents, especially those for newly constructed dwellings, have risen quickly in recent years. Housing analysts, planners, and builders alike face a common question. How sensitive is the demand for rental housing to the price being charged? This report reviews the empirical evidence available. It begins with a review of methodological questions. How do we measure demand? How do we empirically define a "consumer"? How do we separate quality from price changes? How do we measure a consumer's "willingness to pay" or "ability to afford"? What form does a demand function take? This report examines the data sets on which most Canadian and U.S. studies are based. Subsequently, it presents a review of empirical estimates of the price sensitivity of rental housing demand. A set of conclusions are drawn which emphasize the need for better data and a more thorough and systematic analysis of housing demand in Canada
