Dipartimento di Ingegneria Gestionale Politecnico di Milano* (Paper first received, November 2006; in final form, June 2007) Abstract JEL-classification codes: R0; R10; R2 The city in urban economics: requirements, results achieved and new empirical contents The paper considers two themes: the necessary requirements for a modern and critical economic theorisation of the city, and new empirical interpretations of the city in search of proper consideration in a theoretical framework. In regard to the first theme, the paper proposes a theoretical system based on the principles and the doctrine of classical political economy, enriched with some new theorisations that have more recently produced a non-neoclassical interpretation of economic space using a cognitive approach namely, the interpretation of the city as an innovation and knowledge milieu. In regard to the second theme, the paper presents some new interpretations of the city: such as the city as a node of global networks or as the locus of creativity.
