Forces shaping Philadelphia's future


  • Anthony M. Santomero


Does Philadelphia have what it takes to expand economic growth and attract more people? It's a challenge, says President Anthony Santomero in "Forces Shaping Philadelphia's Future." The city has many things to recommend it as a location. Nevertheless, it has faced some difficulties in cultivating a role in certain important segments of the economy, and the city's population has been declining. But good things are also happening. Ultimately, Philadelphia's success - and the success of the surrounding area - depends on the creativity and commitment of its civic and business leaders. If they stay focused on contributing to the city's future, Philadelphia, President Santomero believes, will succeed.
