The Best Thing On The Internet

Economically speaking, weren’t the past 15 years supposed to be the best in our nation’s history? Then why don’t our towns reflect such successes? Do you want to know why your town is struggling?

All these questions and more can be answered in this video from city enthusiast Chuck Marohn. I continue to recognize the good folks over at Strong Towns because of what they do to break down the nuances of city planning and economic development. *Spoiler Alert: We’ve been doing things horribly backwards.

Our new “vibrant and lively” towns.

This video has reached #1 on my Internet Rankings due to its clear and easily understandable explanation of why things are the way they are in our towns today.  This holds true across the country, especially in my town of 34,094 people, which continues to try to cram a square peg through a round hole.

Think you’ve found something better, send me a link and let me know!
