The Political Market Framework and Land Use Project develops a “political market” framework combining elements of political economy and property rights theories with work on local government structure. This framework conceptualizes policy changes as the result of a dynamic bargaining process between policy suppliers and demanders as mediated by political institutions. Current work includes studies of planning and land use decisions, sustainability programs, policy instrument designs and urban energy and transportation infrastructure systems. This project is supported by FSU and National Science Foundation award #030799.
