About this Unit
Financing infrastructure to keep cities running and growing at a time when governments face new financial constraints is a key challenge for urban managers. In order to be able to contribute to the debate about financing cities it is important for future urban managers to develop a basic financial literacy, understand and draw on the options for financing essential urban functions in Australia cities and elsewhere, and assess the tensions involved in public and private financing pathways. This unit addresses these needs through both theoretical and practical approaches to the city as a set of flows within a wider urban network of relations. Students develop their understanding via interactive lectures, case studies, fieldwork exercises and assignments.
