    A good read but outdated and a pipe dream when it was written The concept does work the solution well researched and the ghettoization of the entire region's poor is still a problem But the city has changed rapidly since then losing another hundred thousand people before stabilizing and getting a new influx of affluence which has always been around just outside the borders as Balti metro's per capita income is much in line with Seattle and Philadelphia falling between the two than Indianapolis Jacksonville or especially Detroit as Rusk and others like to reference This book is only from a university press but it could use an update discussing the possibility that the city with smart planning and placement could have the opportunity at some point solve this problem itself rather than relying on the tax money of those who fled two counties away Meanwhile TIF credits for luxury condos
