Leigh's Posts on Charter Cities

Good coverage by Andrew Leigh of the Charter City idea being promoted by Paul Romer. Romer's new ideas get a mixed reaction depending on what part of the internet you land on. There is very little dispute that the guy is a genius though and a likely Nobel winner. We can't do a bookclub on this idea because there isn't yet a book but people should keep watching that space as even as a thought experiment it is leading to really interesting discussions about how one should regulate and govern cities.

I get a sense of Robert Owen's 'Villages of Cooperation' here.
