The world becomes more urban than agrarian
Dec 2010 07

True fact: for the first time in recorded history, more people live in cities than in the country.

What does this mean for all of us, Americans, Bostonians, urbaneers?

It means we’ll need to analyze everything we do through a difference lens than before. How do we take care of the very poor and the very rich, what types of housing will we build for the middle class, what will new public schools look like, what types of public transportation will be built, and how will we pay for it all?

We need to focus on new ways of doing things if we’re going to make this all work. We need wise and practical land use policies while addressing the needs of current but also future residents.

This blog will cover all this, and more!
