Bacon's Prosperity

« Our Return to Noosa in April of 2008 | Main | Human Development »

Jim Bacon has a nice post on suburbs vs. cities, families vs. gays, and the Kotkin-Florida exchange. Not sure I agree with everything he has to say, but he's right that population and job growth do NOT equal prosperity.  Per capita income is one way to get at it, but at the Prosperity Institute were trying to do better than that. As I write, our deputy director, Kevin Stolarick is over in Sweden meeting with Charlotta Mellander who runs a sister institute there to work on developing a new and improved Prosperity Index.  More to come.
