22. It seems that the new urbanism does not
always work to re-create economically diverse communities as much as push the poor out to the first ring of suburbia, where there are few jobs and no transit worth talking about.

I don;'t think this is inevitable, but needs to be fought by maintaining public housing, and promoting local service jobs and small business.
