Question: In what ways does the city of Los Angeles support Urban Ecology and/or Political Economy?
The development of the city of Los Angeles is mainly due to the support of Political Economy because nowadays the government focuses more on economical and political interests. For example, government officials used strategic investment in favored neighborhoods and placed the Los Angeles City Hall in the center of other building around it in Los Angeles Downtown, purely attributing to their political interests.
In addition, government policies tend to design for keeping racial minorities out by moving homeless shelters and making public seats at bus stops and subway stations uncomfortable, for economical interests and due to the goal of making Los Angeles an international megacity the government is pushing for growth in the city.
