Quote of the Day

"To seek "causes" of poverty is to enter an intellectual dead end because poverty has no causes. Only prosperity has causes." ― Jane Jacobs

Jane Jacobs (May 4, 1916 – April 25, 2006) was an American-Canadian journalist, author, and activist best known for her influence on urban studies. Her influential book The Death and Life of Great American Cities (1961) argued that urban renewal did not respect the needs of most city-dwellers.
