Going forward I’ll be posting selected articles over at New Geography. The first installment appears there today, so please be sure to check out “A Tale of Two Blizzards“. It contrasts the approach to government services and taxation taken by Indianapolis and Chicago, and how both of them are under pressure in the current economy.
The Urban State of Mind: Meditations on the City is the first Urbanophile e-book, featuring provocative essays on the key issues facing our cities, including innovation, talent attraction and brain drain, global soft power, sustainability, economic development, and localism. Included are 28 carefully curated essays out of nearly 1,200 posts in the first seven years of the Urbanophile, plus 9 original pieces. Great for anyone who cares about our cities, The Urban State of Mind also makes a great gift this holiday season.
