MetroTrends Weekly Wrap-up
MetroTrends Week in Review
Last week, MetroTrends bloggers offered fresh, metropolitan perspectives on topics in the news:
- John Roman argues that the child abuse tragedy at Penn State can be viewed as an “organizational error” on the university’s part.
- Barbara Ormond waxes optimistic about progress in the fight against HIV/AIDS, in US metros and in developing countries.
- Kim Rueben reminds us that local budget-balancing involves both spending and revenue choices.
- Rolf Pendall predicts that sprawling development on the fringes of metro areas isn’t likely to slow down anytime soon.
