When we talk about economic development, there's always the danger some part of the population will be left behind. The development of the Euclid Avenue Corridor and Steelyard Commons, for example, both promise to bring jobs and revenue to the region, and maybe even improve our quality of life. But what exactly do projects like these bring the region's poorest residents? As part of Making Change: Building the Region's Future, we invited to our studios an expert on what might be called "inclusive development." David Rusk is the former mayor of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the author of Cities without Suburbs, which has been called call the Bible of the regionalism movement. He spoke to ideastream's Dan Moulthrop.
