Country of Cities ~ Chakrabarti's Urban Manifesto

Thanks to UrbanCincy's Randy Simes for spotting Vishaan Chakrabarti's A Country of Cities: A Manifesto for an Urban America!
“The suburbs are largely a creation of “big government,” an explicitly, policy-driven, subsidized scheme that has guided how we live, work, and play,” Chakrabarti explains. “One of the fundamental premises of the book is not whether people should live in the suburbs or not; I believe in free choice. The question is whether they should be paid to do it.”
