The Mystery of Economic Growth

BY IBRAHIMA SORY KABA
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 09, 2014

Far more than an intellectual puzzle for pundits, economists, and policymakers, economic growth - its makings and workings - is a subject that affects the well-being of billions of people around the globe: from the slums of Delhi and Nairobi, to the skyscrapers of Manhattan and Hong Kong.

Taking a closer look at the example of China, Ibrahima Sory Kaba examines the huge discrepancy in standards of living throughout the world and the factors affecting the sustainability of economic growth.

Ice House on Main - Heritage Preservation in Support of Community Development

BY JOSE QUINTANA
@ VOL 10 ON FEB 28, 2017

Jose Quintana discusses AdventGX's heritage preservation model - a process that leverages a community centric mix of entrepreneurship, the arts, and science in support of the development of sustainable heritage preservation. The model is market demand driven along three sustainable development vectors: financial, social and environmental.

This conservative approach to community development uses behavioral and experimental economics to mitigate risks and lower barriers to entry when embarking on new heritage preservation initiatives, not only in underserved urban communities but also in rural settings where heritage based assets are particularly important contributors to quality of life improvements.

Lower Eastside of Detroit

BY DONNA GIVENS
@ VOL 39 ON SEP 11, 2019

Donna Givens has over 30 years of nonprofit leadership experience in areas of youth and family development, community economic development, community partnerships, and community education.

Donna began her presentation with an antidote on a citizen of Detroit's frustrations to continue to pay taxes and not seeing the fruition of those taxes in her neighborhood. These forgotten communities of Detroit are what have been Donna’s focus. Her work bridges the gap between policy, government and community to help loosen land bank owned properties to inspire a more sustainable and efficient use of vacant land in the Lower Eastside of Detroit.
