Many underlying motives of the city difficulty are customary: disproportionate poverty, stiff urban tax charges, and likely unsatisfactory municipal companies (most significantly, public schools). much less famous is the special threat that typically the regulatory rules of the federal government—the principles and rulings imposed via its judges, bureaucrats, and lawmakers—further drawback the towns, eventually burdening their skill to draw citizens and companies.

He examines an array of directive or supervisory equipment in which federal policymakers slim neighborhood autonomy and complicate the paintings city governments are meant to do. city taxpayers finance many expensive tasks which are prescribed by way of federal legislations. A handful of nationwide ideas bore down on neighborhood governments earlier than 1965. this day those governments hard work lower than 1000's of so-called unfunded mandates. Federal relief to massive towns has lagged in the back of a great quantity of mandated bills, every now and then straining municipal budgets. except their economic affects, Nivola argues, a number of federal prescriptions impinge on neighborhood management of regimen providers, tying the palms of managers and complicating urban advancements.
