Joel Kotkin on US cities

Joel Kotkin has posted an outstanding analysis of the condition of US cities on his site.
Mr. Kotkin has completed studies on the future of several major cities, including New York, St. Louis, Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley and the Inland Empire region of Southern California. He is currently completing a study on the future of Phoenix and in association with the Planning Center, is currently working on a new project on the future of suburban development.
His personal knowledge of the subject matter is apparent, and most people will find his conclusions surprising.

Definitely worth a look; I'm adding his books to my "to-read" list.
