This book contributes to the literature on Public Finance and Urban Politics. It takes two normative ideas in the realm of academic debate and applies them to the case of Rockford, Illinois. It is concerned with the financially consequential areas of public policy, urban economic development and urban political economy. The principal elements of social equity and productive efficiency are described, examined, and used as a framework for evaluating whether public officials faithfully reflect distributive equity priorities in their limited discretion over revenue allocations.
