    In 1993, three economists found that patents had a remarkable tendency to cite other patents that were geographically close...... Correcting for the tendency of people to cite patents from the same firm, the propensity to cite patents from the same metropolitan area is about twice as likely as it should have been if citations were determined by luck

    Urban reinventation is made possible by the traditional urban virtues that were to be found in nieteenth-century Detroit: educated workers, small entrepreneurs, and a creative interplay among differnt industries. Late-twentieth-century Detroit was dominated by a single industry that employed hundreds of thousands of less-skilled workers in three vast vertically integrated firms.

    If a city is attracting continuing waves of the less fortunate, helping them succeed, watching them leave, and then attracting new disadvantaged migrants, then it is succeeding at one of society's most important functions. If an area become the home of default for poor poeple who are staying poor, then that area is failing.

    The flow of millions of poor people into cities may be a hopeful sign for those migrants, but it won't necessarily improve the quality of life for the middle-income people who are already living in those areas. Policies aimed at reducing migration into cities, like Mumbai's draconian limitations on building, appeal to current city dwellers who know that crowding and congestion won't make their lives better. density has costs as well as benefits.

    Calhoun's warning remains relevant: Urban density may create marvels, but it also comes with costs. .... urban areas become not only habitable but delightful, for concentrated talent doesn't just make cities productive, it also makes them fun.

    Talent is mobile, and it seeks out good places to consume as well as produce.
