@1 - I'm so glad you're enjoying my book!
@2 -Wow, thank you! You have made my day!!!!
Is urban concentration really necessary with modern transportation and communications?
@34 I'd be happy to be proved wrong, but I think it is -- simply because providing services to dispersed populations isn't sustainable. For example, in the US right now suburbs are having problems maintaining their civil engineering infrastructure. But I'm not saying this is desirable, simply likely. More than 50% of the world's population lives in cities right now, and that will increase to 66% by 2050.
I don't make the rules, I just play the game :D
