Market Urbanism examines how market forces and property rights enable complex, yet vibrant and economically robust communities and regions to emerge through the “spontaneous order” of the land use and transportation marketplace. When left to market forces, as opposed to intervention, land use patterns and transportation systems reflect a society that is economically and environmentally more efficient and just than when imposed in a top-down fashion by government.

Skrećem pažnju na vrlo zanimljiv blog Market Urbanism, koji se bavi libertarijanskim pristupom temama poput gradskog saobraćaja, parkinga, stanovanja, zemljišne politike i slično. Evo kako autor objašnjava kako je blog nastao:
Growing up in suburban Chicago, I felt there was something inefficient about the land patterns and transportation of the suburbs. When I discovered urbanism in freshman architecture/planning coursework, the concepts made sense, despite the paternalistic bent of the professors who advocated urbanism. Thus, I became conflicted between my urbanist instinct and my free market instinct. Through study and practice of building and infrastructure design and construction, economics, planning, development, and urban economics I came to the realization that our problems with sprawl, congestion, and automobile dependency were the result of socialistic economic planning of our transportation system and land use, not due to market failures as many urbanists proclaim.
