Just yesterday I noted how some economists are following Madonna’s lead when it comes to how much importance should be placed on boosting GDP. Now it’s more of the same, but in a different fieldÃ¢â?¬â??urban planning. We all know that planners are obsessed with downtown districts, but what’s the best way to get people to go downtown?
And so we should rely on grand, top-down plans crafted by planners and city council members to get “connected to the contemporary buzz”?
