No Tooth Fairy After All

Let’s revisit a line from the previous post:

The real forces for change in America and around the world are the mayors and the local communities.

There is no calvary riding in from the State legislature. There is no silver bullet in a corporate relocation. There is no plan, no marketing program, no leadership conference and no economic development rainbow that lead to the pot of gold. There is no urban transformation tooth fairy, friends. It’s Dyer. It’s Crotty. And it’s us. It starts here. It ends here. And it’s probably gonna be hard work. So, we have some heavy lifting to do, yes?
