The work of the Urban Dynamics researchers, if accurate, has major implications for public policy in the urban sphere. In fact, reversal of many of our present urban policies will be mandated. Since other research, some of which is simulation-based, has begun to suggest similar conclusions, it seems appropriate to consider the potential impact of Urban Dynamics and similar work on urban public sector policymaking. This paper is not a technical analysis of Urban Dynamics; rather, it is a preliminary assessment of possible policy implications of urban simulation research such as the Forrester model.
