No Rust Here: The New American Heartland

With tweets over the past few days, the Center for Opportunity Urbanism released its latest report by co-authors Joel Kotkin and Michael Lind.  "The New American Heartland: Revitalizing The Middle Class by Revitalizing Middle America" piece is now available for download.

Before the 2016 Presidential election made manufacturing and the Midwest populist topics, the report was being put together. The report sends the message that the "New American Heartland" is the key to revitalizing the entire country and the middle class.  The opportunities for U.S. manufacturing's future are fueled by logistics, energy, and a growing middle class from the Midwest and the entire middle of the country.

I have a bias, but I say it's a must-read.

A sidebar in the report has a familiar name on it.  Here's an excerpt from yours truly.
