From the Good Ideas File: Neighbors Wanted

I’ve fussed at the Wise Economy Workshop recently about the sometimes assumption in urban areas that “If you demolish it, they will come…”  This tied into a theme in the book — the tendency to rely on simplistic assumptions, to assume that one action will somehow make everything right.  It’s OK, we’ve all done it.  But we’ve got to stop doing it.

 

Detroit is taking a neat step in that direction with the recent launch of its auction of city-owned rehabitable homes — and a TV show to boot.

 

Catch the promo for Neighbors Wanted below.  And you’ve probably got people in your town who could help make it happen.
