Ceaucescu: Father Of Smart Growth?
"The dirty little secret is that 'smart growth' as promoted in the U.S. today requires exceedingly high densities to make a difference. Smart growth leaders realize that forcing people to live next to and on top of one another is no more popular in the suburbs of Portland or Phoenix than it was in Romanian villages. As a result, they generally discount the crucial role of density."
