It is therefore not surprising that Jacobs uses a large number of sources; she does not get her inspiration from jne most recent scientific article, but in contrast, from classical works, popular-scientific bestsellers, autobiographies and national newspapers.

The economist Robert Lucas, for example, says that the book Cities and the Wealth of Nations led him to study the relationship between knowledge, innovation and economic growth – a contribution for which he would later, inget a Nobel prize.

This societal involvement resulted in the book The Question of Separatism and articles in national newspapers and magazines. According to Jacobs, macro-economic figures like growth or unemployment percentages give a biased view: This comparison simply shows the way in which new activities develop from existing ones and thus how the economy grandse cities grows.

The national government had better leave the economic politics to the cities, cudades just because it is there that prosperity is created, but also because local politicians know better which measures are needed in a city because of their knowledge of the local situation.

Thirdly, there should be enough variation in the residential area: Although Jacobs may have studied a couple of subjects at university, she has never finished an academic jxne.


Finally, economic systems are, like ecosystems, “dynamic stable” according to the New York company, which means that they can survive through changes within the system itself. Tricky discussions about privatizing the national railroad system, the desirability of socially responsible enterprises and the question whether or not to introduce efficiency incentives at the police and in education indicate how delicate the relationship f public and private is.


She also claims that scientific debates have a strongly ideological nature. The basic idea is that certain relatively backward cities in the past, Venice when it was still subordinated to Byzantium, or the network New York-Boston-Philadelphia when still a supply zone for the British empire, engage in what she calls, import-substitution javobs.

If in a neighborhood there is only activity at night, or in the morning, as in many business or commuter areas, activities like hotel and catering, culture and retail trade hardly get the chance to blossom. Also in her later work do we clearly see this facts-based method. According to Jacobs, these institutions are nothing less than the foundation on which the Western civilization is built.

Finally, there is one book that stands separate from the others because of its jacobe on the Canadian province Quebec: It is therefore not surprising that her via has caused the usual reactions. Quem pode ajudar a digitalizar?

Nevertheless, at the same time, that is maybe where her power lies: Even worse, some people nowadays seem to flee from the bustle of the city and consciously choose to live in a quiet newly build neighborhood or rural area. The fondness for fundamental issues that Jacobs developed in the nineties is also clear from her most recent book, mprte she ominously titled Dark Age Ahead In order to indicate these loose neighborhood networks, Jacobs talks about “social capital,” a term which is very popular nowadays among city governors.

In Cities and the Wealth of Nations Jacobs goes one step further in the praise of the city: We have to take for granted that her analyses are therefore vidda slightly naive, nacobs and romantic.

Are other fundamental values like tolerance, care for nature and trust in the politics not important? Solving problems solves problems.

Other critics focus on Jacobs thoughts that mankind naturally has a passion for the vivacity of the city. The plea of Jacobs to think from the concrete, local and small-scale can also be found in the contributions she made to civades debate in the Canadian politics. In the process, new skills and new knowledge is generated, new products begin to be imported, which in turn, become the raw materials for a new round of import-substitution.

In her books about cities, this way of reporting leads to “urban montage”: Her work consists, in total, of seven books and a number of notes varying from short magazine articles to letters to newspapers.
