Abstract

This paper investigates patterns of collective goods provision in cities over the course of the 20th century. Using historical city finance records and qualitative evidence it explores the factors that lead some communities to invest in collective goods while others do not. The analysis focuses on racial and economic divisions in communities as the driving forces of failure or success.
