Big cities are dumb. Stop it!

New term: Post-crisis crisis

One just one natural disaster any issue with the water supply or epidemic / pandemic of any kind in any of these cities will have repercussions around not just the entire country but the entire world.

megacity

According to a new report from the United Nations Human Settlements Programme there were 29 megacities—those with more than 10 million people—in 2015, compared to just 14 in 1995.

And 79% of them were in the developing world, in Asia, Latin America, and Africa. It’s “an indication that the centre of gravity of the urban world is moving to developing countries,” the report says.

Among the world’s megacities, two are in sub-Saharan Africa: Lagos in Nigeria and Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo are on the list. Johannesburg, South Africa, with a population that’s expected to reach 11 million by 2025, is soon to join.

So far, few countries are prepared to provide the housing, social services, and jobs needed for this ongoing population boom. In Africa, 38% of the urban population is living in slums, more than at any other point in the last two decades, according to the UN.

Under-investment in infrastructure, low levels of research and innovation, spiky levels of urbanization, uneven development, and a significant increase in income poverty are contributing to the breakdown of the global economy.

Urbanization has never been reversed except by force.

High rises are a sign of failure not success. New term: Fail scrappers

What are you creating? Crime, dease, poverty and desperation. (Shit)

10-20 years ago these lot all lived on farms with fresh air plenty of food and a better life.

America doesn’t all move to NYC. It’s because they are not stupid.
