About this book


The economist starts from the point that land and buildings are scarce resources and it is essential that they are used as efficiently as possible. This text shows how economic analysis can be applied to economic problems connected with land, in both the private and public sectors, and suggests ways in which the existing allocation of land resources can be improved. This revised and updated edition of Jack Harvey's well-known and successful text fully covers the syllabuses for the RICS and ISVA professional examinations, and provides essential reading for HND and degree students of estate management, surveying, town planning, housing administration and the environment.
