    The deep and widespread financial and economic crisis that started in 2007 has spawned powerful protest movements across the US. Some of the protest grass root movements are pushed forward by the crisis in giving up on that very notion by embracing a no growth and wealth redistribution approach. Other movements that are ideologically critical of public policies have been prompted by the crisis to return to an even more pronounced free market approach and to the anti-city posture. A distinctive lack of vision for the future of cities has become the common denominator of both movements. A constructive thinking for the future of American cities suggests a positive role with regard to cities so that they can continue to be the levers of knowledge production for a sustainable development.
