How can American manufacturing be reinvented to thrive in an era of globalization?



Expand Urban Farming

11

Allow vacant urban land currently zoned residential to be farmed. Change planning rules to allow fencing, water meters and electricity onto farmed lots. Permit grown produce to be sold. The value of local produce is very high - five dollar a pound tomatoes - and the ONLY thing standing in the way of a micro farm boom are the cities themselves.
