Seen politically, the wish of Quebec to be independent may be controversial, according to Jacobs, but from an economic jnae of view the separation would have only advantages for both the province itself and Canada as a whole.

The street is the scene a “sidewalk ballet,” according to Jacobs, which determines the security, social cohesion and economic development of cities. Are other fundamental values like tolerance, care for nature and trust in the politics not daa Generally, one assumes that the agricultural era preceded the period in which cities flourished.

In rural areas, also, there are examples of social capital, entrepreneurship and creativity. The Struggle of Quebec over Sovereignty about the regionalism of the French speaking province of Quebec, the pragmatic approach of Jacobs is clearly visible. Jacobs did not just have a trenchant writing style; she suited her actions action to her words. For example, in the Dutch cities of Breda and Haarlem, investments have been made in living above shops, not just to build more houses, but also to create “eyes on the street” and “social capital.

Hence this region will not suffer the fate of so many American company towns, which die after the corporation that feeds them moves elsewhere. Very exceptionally, inshe accepted the Toronto Arts for Life Time Achievement on Jane Jacobs Day; from that moment on, she has refused all prizes and honorary doctorates.


Furthermore, the unsystematic, inductive approach that Jacobs uses sometimes raises questions.

For a good performance of the urban play, she claims, the scene needs to meet four conditions. Jane Jacobs has granres 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. Paradoxically, that common sense especially makes her a radical thinker.

Even though she writes about cities, the economy and fundamental societal issues, she is anything but a city planner, economist or social scientist. That the body of ideas of Jacobs cuts ice can be seen in the practice of everyday.

In this book, which is mainly focused on North American current affairs, five fundamental institutions are identified: More and more municipalities in Europe – whether or not consciously – use her ideas successfully. After one and a half year Jacobs spread her wings and moved from provincial Scranton to cosmopolitan New York.

Yet, meshworks of small producers within the city, by interlocking their skills can begin to replace those imports with local production, which can then be exchanged with other backward cities. Then she found out how little planning theory jaen with the reality of city life. Thirdly, there should be enough variation in the dsa area: Cities and Economics Although in her first work Jacobs pays special attention to the city life of every day, in the two books that follow she places the city in a broader historical and economic context.

She developed her ideas on this in three books which each have the word “cities” in the title.

She also took courses in physics and social codades at Columbia University, just because she liked them. In Systems of Survival: According to Jacobs, however, cities already existed before humankind even started with agriculture; in fact, it was the cities that have made agricultural activities possible.

Secondly, Jacobs believes that a city benefits from short building blocks and an intricate street structure. From this perspective, even taking out the garbage or having a talk with a passer-by is a deed of dramatic expression. Especially Jacobs praise viva the cities as the driving force behind prosperity and welfare seems xas little naive to many. In order to diminish the economic differences between the provinces, the Canadian government put aside huge sums of tax money for support measures to Quebec.


If Quebec separated from Canada and got self-government, this impasse could end: Under her supervision demonstrations and neighborhood protests were held against what she called the “Federal Bulldozer” approach.

If it were up to her, this would not be not the last book she writes. Jacobs accepted all kinds of jobs, varying from journalist to secretary, but sometimes could find no work at uane. Just like her previous works, these books will surely get a lot of media attention when they are finished, but as in the past, she will reject ajcobs form of recognition.

In Cities and the Wealth of Nations Jacobs goes one step further in the praise of the city: Leia agora o “A natureza das economias”, escrito 40 anos depois do “Morte e Vida”. Contudo, esse trunfo precisa ser capitalizado. This self-organized reservoirs of skills also explain why economic jaxobs cannot be exported to the third world via large transfers of capital invested in dams or other large structures.

A well-known application of bio-mimicry is the Wright brothers, who developed the wings of their plane following the example of cidade wings of a vulture.

Finally, economic systems are, like ecosystems, “dynamic stable” according to the New York company, which means that they can survive through changes within the system itself.

She believes separatism results from the rivalry between Quebec and the neighboring, but much wealthier province Ontario.
