Abstract

The paper probes the thesis that variance in economic development outcomes is determined in part by agencies perceiving anonymous publics where no direct interaction is involved. It examines this with reference to an upper-middle-class lifestyle. Using infrastructure investment of 42 transit agencies across the US, regression results show a class factor to be more significant in explaining differences in policy outcomes than those of traditional rival theses.
