Consider each week’s post a mile marker (MM) of sorts, a cerebral off ramp, taking a you little further down this road until sometime in September when we reach … well you can decide what we’ve reached for yourself. Also please subscribe so you can receive the weekly installments.

MM 6: Silos
MM 7:Don’t fall for Starbuck, and “Staying off the Interstate”
MM 8:Cheating the Grim Reaper of ‘Small Town U.S.A.’
MM 9:Buy Local … or maybe not!
MM 10:“Where Everyone Knows Your Name”
MM 11:Apollo 13, MacGyver and ‘Resource Maximization’

Cities Building Wealth free report

In cities across the nation, a few enjoy rising affluence while many struggle to get by. This situation is created in part by the practices of traditional economic development. Current trends threaten to worsen, unless we can answer the design challenge before us.
