Twenty-First Century City by Stephen Goldsmith
Book DescriptionA hopeful glimpse of the city of the future-a city where less bureaucratic intervention means lower costs, safer streets, and better services. Mayor Goldsmith has proved that by using this new philosophy of urban governance-of government acting as a business and perceiving its citizens as customers-America's cities can once again buzz with the sounds of success.
