    NYC poverty rate among all ethnics is more than the national rate and this is the most elite city we are discussing about. The taxation on elites has been decreased while at the same the elite class is the main benefactor of tax expenditures with abatement, credits, and tax free zones. The affordable housing is negligible. Every mayor since Abraham Beame followed classic Neoliberal Theory: Starve it, complain of its deficits, sell off bits, then privatize the whole thing.

    This is a fantastic book about development in nyc and the the construction of new power relations post-1975. It is excellent on showing how New York City is a neo-liberal city which public programs being cut while simultaneously private developers are given a free for all on development and real estate in all of the five boroughs. Social services were systematically cut while any kind of community input was taken away while Wall Street created a super-rich class that sought to build housing and This is a fantastic book about development in nyc and the the construction of new power relations post-1975.

GREAT!

    Aaron Amaral from DC 37 Legal recommended I read this. It's an interesting analysis about the power shift that's taken place in NYC over the past 35 years. I was hoping for more analysis and less journalistic narrative; parts of the book lulled me to sleep while riding the subway.
