What Can Cities do to Create Jobs/Economic Growth?

That was the question this week at the Independent Forum. Martha Burk, thankfully not Richardson’s economic advisor, seems to think that only government can create jobs. Responses from the more rational panelists can also be found, including, not surprisingly, a rather lengthy response from yours truly (the final one).

I do wonder, however, where are the postings from the liberal lions like Carter Bundy or Jim Baca (former Albuquerque Mayor!!!), or Arthur Alpert? Surely they have some thoughts on how to create jobs (or are their views the same as Burk’s which is, expand government?)

As always, please add your own $.02 at the Forum.
