For example, in the Dutch cities of Breda and Haarlem, investments have been jaxobs in living above shops, not just to build more houses, but also to create “eyes on the street” and “social capital. Cities and the Wealth of Nations. Jacobs names both systems “syndromes” because their elements cannot do without each other and show an inner connection.

These every day acts make a city into a vital city. Within economic science, “evolutionary economics” is strongly on the rise. Jacobs concludes from these kinds of examples the general thesis that cities grow by treating, renewing and exporting imported goods and services, which results in income that can be used to import new items.

She developed her ideas on this in three books which each have the word “cities” in the title. Even worse, some people nowadays seem to flee from the bustle of the city and consciously choose to live in a quiet newly build neighborhood or rural area. Not only socially, but also economically, urban diversity is of great importance, according to Jacobs.

If it were up to her, this would not be not the last book she writes. Jacobs was arrested twice while doing this. Based on these observations she developed throughout the years a more general theory of the distinction between undertaking enterprises and governing. Jacobs work is often dismissed as unscientific or even amateurish. Although Jacobs does not always agree with the policy of the municipality, according to her Toronto continues to be a model of a diverse and vital city, or “a city which works.


Especially her later books about fundamental values in which she uses Platonic dialogues would not meet the scientific standards of objectivity, ability to generalize and test empirically.

Vida e Morte das Rodovias Urbanas

Nevertheless, at the same time, that is maybe where her power lies: In order to build her thesis, she refers to a number of examples and anecdotes. If Quebec separated from Canada and got self-government, this impasse could end: In Systems of Survival English youth gangs, the pre-historic granddes of India, and the debt crisis of the Third World are just as easily discussed dws the influence of the Italian Mob in Canada, the customs of the East-African tribe – and the adventures of her father in law in the American Civil War.

Jane Jacobsop. If there are enough “eyes on the street,” she claims, crime is not given a chance and the collective feeling of security increases. Politicians struggle with issues in the field of city development and dxs working of the market every day.

For a good performance of the urban play, she claims, the scene needs to meet four conditions. In order to penetrate reality, in short, Jacobs trusts the most direct observation, the everyday and common sense.

Furthermore, the unsystematic, inductive approach that Jacobs uses sometimes raises questions. Despite their interdependence, the two sorts of morals need to be kept strictly separate, according to Jacobs. Paradoxically, that common sense especially makes her a radical thinker. Jane Jacobs has created a theory of the dynamics of networks of small producers meshed together by their interdependent functions, and has collected some historical evidence to support her claims. Jacobs accepted all kinds of jobs, varying from journalist to secretary, but sometimes could find no work at viida.

Jacobs still has a love-hate relation towards writing: Robert Moses, a powerful commissioner in New York at that time, for example, supported a policy in which small scale and lively neighborhoods must be replaced by megalomaniac projects like business centers, motorways and skyscrapers. Jacobs fears that if this trend continues, then “societal dementia” will occur: In the periods when she was unemployed, she took iane walks through New York and observed the hustle and bustle of the city.


In the meantime, Jacobs wrote for the magazine Architectural Forum, where she applied herself to urban development and planning.

Solving problems solves problems. Furthermore, critics wonder if Jacobs as a relative outsider even has a right to speak on themes that she has janf graduated in.

JANE JACOBS – Escola de Redes

In order to indicate these loose neighborhood networks, Jacobs talks about “social capital,” a term which is very popular nowadays among city governors. Economic development must emerge from within as meshworks of skills grow and proliferate”. Hence this region will not suffer the fate of so many American company towns, which die after the corporation that feeds them moves elsewhere. However, she jacobd not discouraged by that.

Tricky discussions about privatizing the national railroad system, the desirability of socially responsible enterprises and the question whether or not to introduce efficiency incentives at the police and in education indicate vda delicate the relationship between public and private is.

She loves the urban dynamic and is fascinated by the people who live, work and amuse themselves in cities. This vision is in sharp contrast to the ideal of many city planners and officials from her New York period, like Le Corbusier and Moses.

She still lives there happily downtown, on Albany Avenue The variety in functions, buildings and people also plays an important role in maintaining social cohesion. We have to take for granted that her analyses are therefore sometimes slightly naive, subjective and romantic.

Jacobs can say meaningful things about these issues. These corrections take place through complex processes like positive, itself strengthening feedback, negative check mechanisms and natural defensive jacoba.
