Maximizing Opportunity Urbanism with Robin Hood Planning

My first paper as a Senior Founding Fellow with the Center for Opportunity Urbanism has just been published: Maximizing Opportunity Urbanism with Robin Hood Planning - How enlightened planners can be champions for the little guy and save America in the process (backup link). It's an analytical policy-oriented paper aimed at getting urban planners to consider upward social mobility and inequality in their decision making, but don't let that scare your off - it's a pretty easy and short read.  It articulates the key challenge faced by cities (affordable proximity) and four ways to maximize opportunity. It's already gotten a nice shout out from Scott Beyer at Forbes.  Please check it out and forward it to all of your urban planning friends.  I'm looking forward to your thoughts on it in the comments.
