Market maximization of individual preferences and metropolitan service responsibility. Urban Affairs Quarterly, 25, 86-116.

Norton's findings on city service and spending patterns, and their contributions to fiscal stress have been replicated by other economists. See, for example, Bahl, R. W. (1984). Financing State and Local Government in the 1980's. New York: Oxford University Press; Bradbury, K. , Downs, A. and Small, K. A. (1982). Urban Decline and the Future of American Cities.

Older cities offer a broader menu of activities in the areas of public works, public safety, and administrative support services.

Older cities spend more per capita on local services than their younger counterparts, and they also seem to expend their resources quite differently.
