Abstract

This short article evaluates Forrester’s Urban Dynamics book and model in the light of some of the major urban challenges in the emerging economies. The article poses the hypothesis that the Urban Dynamics model is feasible to address these problems, albeit with a few changes in model structure. These structural changes might have significant impacts on the effectiveness of Forrester’s proposed policies. Future research questions are posed as an invitation to further study the enormous urban challenges affecting large shares of the world population.
