James Siodla, assistant professor of economics, recently published an article, “Razing San Francisco: The 1906 Disaster as a Natural Experiment in Urban Redevelopment,” in the Journal of Urban Economics, 89: 48-61, September 2015. The paper examines residential density across razed and unburned areas between 1900 and 2011 and concludes that a large density differential still exists today. The article is available online.
