Summary

Contrary to accepted wisdom, rapid urban growth can leave communities permanently scarred, deeply in debt, with unaffordable housing, a lost sense of community, and sacrificed environmental quality.

In Better NOT Bigger, Fodor explodes the fundamental myth that growth is good for us and that more development will bring in more tax money, add jobs, lower housing costs, and reduce property taxes.
Lively and well-illustrated, Better NOT Bigger provides insights, ideas, and tools to empower citizens to switch off their local ''growth machine'' by debunking the pro-growth rhetoric. Highly accessible to ordinary citizens as well as professional planners.
