  • Electric Jets, Buried Trash And Controlled Ownership. Welcome To Marc Lore’s ‘City Of The Future.’

    “One of the primary motivators here to do this was . . . testing a new model for society,” says Lore, 50. “What we’re calling ‘equitism,’ which is capitalism reimagined.” He adds: “It won’t look like The Jetsons. It’ll look like a real city.” He envisions a cross between New York City, Tokyo and Stockholm, leveraging each location’s efficiency, diversity and environmentalism, respectively.


  • How Bad Transit Encourages Car Ownership

    “Imagine if access to parks and lakes weren’t limited to those who can afford to buy, maintain, and park their cars. That could go far in improving access for exploited, poor communities who are disproportionately harmed by highway pollution.”
