Should urban economic development continue to “attract and retain” nonlocal business? Absolutely not, argues economist and attorney Michael Shuman in his latest book, The Local Economy Solution (Chelsea Green, 2015). Instead, cities should spread self-financing “pollinator” enterprises that nurture locally owned businesses through local planning, entrepreneurship, partnerships, purchasing, and investment. Shuman signs copies of the book after his talk. This talk is offered as part of Smart Growth programming. 1.0 LU HSW (AIA) / 1.0 CM (AICP) / 1.0 PDH (LA CES)
