More Kotkin

Kotkin's writing more about suburbs and the decline of the urban bias experienced in Washington and Columbus, until recently.

Speaking of federal spending policies to expect in the near term:  "You can also forget the hundreds of millions ascribed for 'smart growth' plans, which, in essence, seek to direct development and housing towards high-density urban areas."

The message included this for urbanists:  "Cities need to break their reliance on outside help from a country that is, for the most part, not dense or urban. Future urban progress cannot rely on Washington’s largesse or diktats."
