The Goldilocks Growth Rate

I’m back with another “Ask Aaron Anything” podcast. If you have any questions you’d like me to answer, or topics you would like to see me cover, send them my way, because I want to be looking at the things that are on your minds.

Today a reader asks, what is the maximum growth rate a city can have without running into excessive negatives like congestion or environmental issues? He asked it in the context of Milwaukee. I also respond to a question about which smaller cities – less than 100,000 – are thriving without either being based on tourism/second homes,  or having a single large institutional employer like a university. It’s a great question, and I’d love to hear any that you would add. Just post in the comments.

Also, thanks to those of you who left an iTunes podcast rating. If you haven’t already, please click over quickly and leave one, because this helps people to discover the podcast. Thanks.
