Land rent and the urban space in contemporary capitalism
This paper aims to expose and discuss which schools of economic thought are able of presenting formulations that dialogue with the spatial conformation of cities in contemporary capitalism. For this, it is based on a presentation of the assumptions of a traditional Neoclassical model of Urban Economics, followed by a critical appreciation of this model. From this critique, different views of the schools of economic thought are exposed in relation to the concept of land rent, which is understood as a category of analysis still useful to understand such a spatial structure, as well as the considerations about the particularities of the urban.
