The Other Jane Jacobs
 / 

Sure sure, you’ve heard all about Jane Jacobs’ The Death and Life of American Cities. It’s been totally absorbed by the Conventional Wisdom and, in its way, made harmless: Oh look, a little old lady writing about neighborhoods.

3quarksdaily writes up Jacobs’ other books — the ones that make much larger, and much more radical, macroeconomic claims.

It’s no mere recitation, and 3qd writer Alon Levy doesn’t let Jacobs go uncriticized. His summation:

Jacobs’ policy suggestions span the entire gamut from politically insane to extremely cogent.

I like the sound of that!
