Theme: Globalization and urban redevelopment.
Subject Article: "Suburbs and the New American Poverty."
Other Links: 1. "Who owns the city? Most urban Indians would consider a high-rise residential gated community to be a dream home, but sociologist Saskia Sassen find this form of architecture deeply problematic."

Postscript: My take on the Atlanta streetcar project is one-sided and unfair. I don't care how anyone spins it. It's a first rate boondoggle that will do a world of harm. For a better perspective on this issue, give this piece from Next City a read.
