The episode is, "Want Your City to Prosper? Then Forget Everything You Think You Know about Economic Growth" and it focuses on why the conventional wisdom around development so often leads communities down a dark path of decay — hosted by ILSR co-director Stacy Mitchell.
The Institute for Local Self-Reliance helps communities to design systems, policies and enterprises that meet local or regional needs; to maximize human, material, natural and financial resources; and to ensure that the benefits of these systems and resources accrue to all local citizens. We see a lot of overlap with this and the Strong Towns mission.
