I was curious about the work cited in Ron Johnson's article:

Robert M. Fogelson’s book Downtown: Its Rise and Fall, tracks deterioration from congestion, high tax rates, expensive real estate prices, overbuilding, pricey parking, and the lure of the suburbs

Here's the book: http://books.google.ca/books/about/Downt...

I like to read as much as I can get my hands on about urban studies, and while there are differing and equally valid opinions out there, I have never once read a serious urban theorist propose that congestion and high parking costs were at the root of urban decay. That idea seems to contradict supply and demand.
