From community to prosperity
AbstractHecht argues that poverty is systemic, and needs to be solved beyond the geography of individual communities. Quality jobs, which provide economic security and the opportunity to build wealth, and the connection to them, are critical. Living Cities is using a strategy they call Prosperity Development, which involves civic infrastructure, systems innovation, engaging the private market in shared value, use of data (including "big data") and social media, rapid prototyping, and distributed leadership are all part of this strategy. Community development that involves partnership, market focus and innovative solutions is most likely to be successful.
