By Gene Krebs. I recently discovered a very interesting report by the British publication The Economist entitled "Livable Cities: Challenges and Opportunities for Policymakers". It examines what makes a city livable through an international lens.
It is interesting to read since it is written from a different perspective than most American publications. For example, the whole structure of the article varies from the typical Brookings Institution report. Additionally, there are more than one or two odd spellings.
Among the people interviewed for this long piece is Gerald Frug, famous to lawyers for his textbook on local government law (which sits on my non-lawyer bookshelf).
Please share your comments on this report and let us know what you think.
