Point of Reference in Bloomberg Cities

Bloomberg Cities, James Anderson

In his October 18, 2018 article, Bloomberg’s James Anderson advances one of the main themes in Our Towns, namely that “so much of our country’s most promising and hopeful innovation is coming from the smaller cities and towns of the Heartland.”

The Fallowses and other leaders interested and involved in this work are together this weekend at the Heartland Summit in Bentonville, AR. Anderson concludes, “What’s driving these cities and towns isn’t a thirst for disruption but, rather, the public interest in having strong communities and vibrant local economies where all people have a meaningful opportunity to get ahead. And that’s an idea that every civic innovator — from coast to coast and everywhere in between — should get behind.”
