History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.

This assignment is to compare the engines of change in Old Paris and New Lagos. Use as many of the concepts we have discussed over the last two weeks to address the following two questions.
In what ways is the history of Paris “rhyming” in the socio-spatial processes of Lagos?
How well do you feel that any of the theories described so far in this semester can explain the changes in Paris and Lagos?

Engines of Change in Old Paris and New Lagos
‘History does not repeat itself, but often rhyme’s is a famous quote that can be used to contextualize the historical evolution of towns. This saying denotes that history does not unfold in precisely the same way, but some threads and elements reaped itself. This paper is an exposition of the socio-spatial correlation between Old Paris and Lagos.
The two historic cities have similarities and differences. Paris has a longer epoch of history than Lagos. Lagos and Old Paris arise from separate socio-economic contexts. Lagos is a city in developing countries, while Paris is in a developed nation. These disparities are more pronounced problems in one city than another. For example, slums and accessibility of basic essential services in Lagos city are more palpable than in the case of Paris. Furthermore, Paris has a more in-depth and lengthy history when compared to Lagos: Lagos historical data can be traced up to 1900, while Paris stretches back to 1700, or even more than that.
A number of factors determine the dynamics that relate and rhyme between the two cities. First, the agglomeration impact is quantitatively important, but it is quite an elusive concept. Second, the productive edge of large cities is constantly being reduced and must be sustained via innovations and job creation. Third, the phenomenon of creative destruction is a culmination of growth, which is determined by features of urban systems, in light of broader institutional engagements. Thus, the challenge of a city like Lagos is its inability to reinforce the role of the urban system as a driving force behind economic growth in the city (Duranton, 2014).
