Megalopolis (city type)
Are these world-wide urban areas going to define our human future?
Here’s a wiki link on the subject: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megalopolis_%28city_type%29
I myself do not know the answer to my question.
I do think there are mainly failed ideas that only time exposed as poor ideas in the long run. That idea includes too many people, since I do believe concentrations of humans in urban areas has made some evolving sense in our past of the last few decades. After all, numbers and jobs and profits count, too, even if they might fail in the long term.
