Your financial success depends upon serving other people, and the best place for doing so is a city. But what if your city is dying? Cities have been growing for more than 100 years. In 1950 America had about ten cities and surroundings with populations of over one million people. Today there are about 50 such places. Over 80% of North Americans now live in cities. The trend is worldwide in both developed and developing nations. They are moving to cities but not only for more money. There are other equally important but connected reasons. Empires like Russia, Britain, Rome, Spain, and Ottoman change or die but their cities like Moscow, London, Rome, Barcelona and Istanbul are still there. The result of no great cities in Africa. Why the Nazi Luftwaffe bombed London rather than the invasion beaches. Do you feel God’s presence more in Galveston or more in Grand Canyon? Does agricultural success evolve into cities or the opposite? Why would you care? Now people are fleeing cities for rural refuge. Sometimes cities are the best of places, other times, the worst. Successful countries need successful cities. Using technology to create an artificial city for your welfare.
