Economic Revitalization of an Advanced Civilization

Imagine a significant jobs project that spanned centuries providing employment for generations. By combing concepts such as the Principles of Intelligent Urbanism as well as ideas from Constantinos Apostolou Doxiadis while enlisting the participation of building architects, civil engineers, scientists, and many other fields and disciplines, a new climate of prosperity could emerge if we put the ideas into action. With the right planning, a “ripple out effect” would occur in society in which several activities perpetuate others to produce unyielding economic progress. The result is an economic chain reaction of the sustainable kind.

The new situation is visualized at one of several macro levels. Consider the concept of the Post 21st Century City Cluster. City clusters are what some today refer to as counties or perhaps metropolitan areas.

Time and again, however, we have seen the effects of the products, services, and perspectives on which great success has been founded to lack the elements necessary to sustain prosperity. During the occasions we experience protracted declining success, we often pause to consider how we may improve what we offer to society and in what ways technology and processes can be improved.

We do live on technology. As a catalyst to action and, at times, an active agent for change. More often technology is the way we channel our intentions and needs in communication, knowledge, resources, and personal satisfaction. Acquiring these things through technology has been a principle effort of our society, in all its forms, for many years. Today, we can see a wider payoff on the horizon. Benefits of our efforts include greater abundance of Read More »
