Cities for Profit

This chapter develops a comparative framework for analyzing state land strategies across cities. This framework focuses on two fundamental variables that differentiate societies—the relative autonomy of land managers from non-state sources of social influence, and the extent of state control of urban land markets, specifically through state ownership of land. The chapter develops a basic typology of land management regimes: a political economy of the land grab (represented in the case studies by Indonesia); a political economy of state capitalist urban planning (represented by China); and a political economy of ‘occupancy urbanism’ (represented by India).
