Geoffrey West solves the equations of cities

A physicist who has turned his attention to what fundamental laws underpin cities has come up with some very interesting, and seemingly more or less universal, ratios and mathematical understandings for cities. They seem to work regardless of what city, and regardless of the identities that cities of the world pride themselves of.

I am of course thrilled to see that it supports many of my personal preferences, such as cities being the more sustainable way for people to organise themselves (I never thought ‘back to nature’ was a good idea – it does much better without lots of humans bumbling about in it), and suburbs being an abomination.

For some reason I get excited by thoroughly analysed statistics. I probably should be worried about that.
