Chapter 12. LAND-USE PLANNING

Today wealth is measured in a variety of ways (including virtual value). One hundred years ago it was primarily about the land. Because it was closer to reality and common sense: one who had land could grow crop and got enough food. Land is still an ultimate value: economic resource; place to perform and deliver; space to live. All that hardly will change in next 50 years, so pay attention, and learn about it as hard as you can.
