MIT report identifies keys to new American innovation

From ‘Main Street’ firms to multinationals, improvements possible in funding of research, collaboration among manufacturers.

Economy of homes is a most important issue to children - and one that USA continuously messes up according to new book by MIT prof "Chicago and Atlanta, two ‘conspicuous experiments’  http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2013/lawrence-vale-book-purging-the-poorest-0430.html 

“Purging the Poorest” is a case study of two cities, Chicago and Atlanta. Both have essentially razed whole neighborhoods twice in the last 80 years: first transforming urban slums to public-housing projects starting in the 1930s, and then demolishing those buildings, since the 1990s, in favor of lower-density buildings.   

“Chicago and Atlanta are probably the nation’s most conspicuous experiments in getting rid of, or at least transforming, family public housing,” Vale explains. However, he notes, “It’s hard to find an older American city that doesn’t have at least one example of this double clearance.”

Essentially, Vale says, these cities exemplify one basic question: “Should public resources go to the group most likely to take full advantage of them, or to the group that is most desperately in need of assistance?”
