Washington University Global Studies Law Review


This Article notes that despite China’s policy to encourage automobile ownership, China’s urban planning policies seem aimed at avoiding the development of a completely automobile dependent economy and culture, unlike the United States’ economy and culture. This Article concludes with the observation that growth management and energy policies in both the United States and China appear to be on a collision course with the new global energy and environmental realities of the twenty-first century.
