In the Gated City, Ryan Avent makes the argument that the potential for gains in productivity are hamstrung by America's policies that fight density. I think he argues his point satisfactorily, but his argument would have been stronger if he focused more on the idea that those fight density friendly developments, The NIMBYs, are in violation of the individual developers rights to use their private property in the manner they see fit.
