Entrevista com o Glaeser

Aqui. Um bom trecho:
"The great urbanist Jane Jacobs was correct about so much in cities, but she got housing prices wrong. She noted that old housing was cheaper than new housing, and so she thought that restricting new development could keep prices down. That’s not how supply and demand works. Abundant supply is the only way to reduce prices in really high-demand areas."

Eu acho o Pritchett sempre brilhante e esse paper nao fica atras. Tem uma coisa que eu nao entendo nesse paper. Afinal, a produtividade do trabalho nao eh soh do imigante e das instituicoes, é do estoque de K no pais tb.
Tlvz pq o Pritchett tenha essa agenda de defender a livre imigracao, ele tlvz coloque para baixo do tapete algumas outras consideracoes.
