    Abstract

    This paper presents and analyzes contracts in socio-economic conditions between metropolitan inner, or central, cities and surrounding suburbs. The paper starts with a brief summary of basic theory of metropolitan formation and spatial structure. It is shown that the theoretical model provides a partial explanation of voluntary segregation by income, with income rising by distance of residences from the metropolitan center. Attention is next focused on the high U.S. incidences of socioeconomic dysfunctions compared with other OECD countries. High U.S. levels of dysfunction are racially related, as is metropolitan segregation by income. These relationships are documented and analyzed, with emphasis focused on reasons that relatively low income minorities have remained in inner cities in such large numbers.
