Urbanization in the USA and elsewhere

  1. 1. Urbanization in the usa (and Elsewhere)<br />How Our Cities Have Changed<br />By<br />Terry Onley<br />(Sources listed on last slide.)<br />1<br />
  2. 2. New York City, 1932<br />Unquestioned financial and corporate leading city, then…<br />Less so over time, IT companies were staying away in droves<br />2<br />
  3. 3. With AOL-Time Warner coming to town,that might all change…<br />What is an “A”, “O”, “L”?<br />That’s OK, they still have Wall Street,<br />sort of…<br />3<br />
  4. 4. ”The present now, will later be past, the order is rapidly fadin’. <br />And the first one now, will later be last, for the times they are<br />a-changin’” Bob Dylan, 1964<br />New York City<br />Houston<br />Dubai<br />4<br />
  5. 5. See the nice chart of projected Federal Spending. See the <br />lovely rise right about, well, now. Do we think the <br />Congressional Budget Office might be fudging a bit? <br />Maybe a little conservative on the <br />“All Other Spending”?<br />Maybe.<br />Perhaps a whole bunch<br />of micromanagement?<br />Federal oversight of<br />affairs previously<br />considered local?<br />More Federal <br />regulations,<br />anyone?<br />It’s all for your own good, you know…<br />5<br />
  6. 6. Maybe that’s why D.C. and the surrounding states are the only places in the<br />USA that are not having a recession,<br />in fact are experiencing growth in<br />the professional and business<br />service jobs category, the<br />best IT job climate in the<br />country, and rising<br />real estate prices.<br />Maybe<br />6<br />
  7. 7. Here are some old pictures of Billings, Montana, and<br />Karaganda, Kazakhstan…<br />The background is Karaganda…<br />I think<br />7<br />
  8. 8. Here are some pictures of the train stations <br />in Billings and Karaganda. The one in the <br />background is in Billings…<br />I think<br />Makes you want to hop <br />on a train, and go pick some beets,<br />Doesn’t it?<br />8<br />
  9. 9. Between 1846 and 1924, about 55 million <br />Europeansemigrated, and about 41 million did not<br />return. More than half of these folks stayed in the USA.<br />9<br />
  10. 10. They were looking for a better life. We were unsure of them.<br />We exploited many of them, but in the end, <br />we accepted them<br />They became us<br />We are all immigrants<br />10<br />
  11. 11. This is a picture of the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. These beautiful buildings<br />were known as the “White City” (because most of them were painted white), <br />and the whole project inspired the “City Beautiful” movement, whereby <br />Chicago and other major cities were to be rebuilt as lovely park cities, with<br />no buildings over 4 stories or so, and meandering parkways and tree-lined<br />avenues throughout the city.<br />The <br />landlords<br />didn’t like <br />the idea.<br />Taller buildings,<br />more tenants,<br />more rent.<br />I wonder how that worked out…<br />11<br />
  12. 12. Oops!<br />The money won. It always does.<br />12<br />
  13. 13. London in the 19th Century was a pretty <br />nasty place, sooty and disease-ridden.<br />Yet, it had its charms, its beauty, its warmth.<br />13<br />It still does<br />
  14. 14. One can only hope that Houston and Dubai will <br />retain their ancestral charm.<br />Especially Dubai…<br />14<br />
  15. 15. For better or worse, our future will be hugely<br />steered by these developing cities.<br />Boom or bust, they are where the new money<br />lives, and will wield a disproportionate <br />amount of power in our “Global Village.”<br />15<br />
  16. 16. Looks like we’re all moving to the ‘burbs, anyway…<br />The End<br />16<br />
