„Economics is not about money“. This bon mot also applies to urban and regional economics, which look well beyond the relation between merely space and money. Rather, interdependencies between spatial development processes on the one hand, and decisions about limited resources on the other hand, are given centre stage. This includes questions regarding policies and practices of land use, spatial manifestations of economic structural change, the functioning of submarkets (housing,industry,trade or leisure), the real estate industry or the interplay between changes to temporal and spatial structures. This volume offers a broad palette of perspectives on the multi-layered field of urban and regional economics. It reflects both current and timeless debates and equally addresses readers from the scientific community and the interested public. As such, it pays tribute to Prof. Dr. Dietrich Henckel, who held the Chair of Urban and Regional Economics at TU Berlin’s Institute of Urban and Regional Planning from 2004 to 2017, and contributed passionately to a wide range of discourses. By bringing together many of his academic companions from the many different contexts of his work, the volume reflects Dietrich Henckel’s broad spectrum of interests and activities. As a “general merchandise store” of urban and regional economics, it presents a colourful array of short contributions that provide insights into a diversity of topics, methods and interpretations.
