The Sustainable Economic Initiative (SEI) A Collaborative model for Civil Socieity

702 views

Published on

This is a 'net zero,' economic burden to municipalities seeking to reverse the urban blight and decay inherent to most rust belt inner cities. I poses a partnership between private and public sectors that is more expansive and integrated. The SEI is, in fact, closer in structure to the Japanese, 'Keiretsu,' that leveraged Japan into a wold economic power. Look elsewhere on slideshare for a one slide presentation of: The Social Keiretsu.
