Strategic Hamlets in America...an Approach to the Problems of the Urban and Rural Poor. Essays in Economics, No. 21.
Pender, David R.
Cities, as centers of urban culture, have not successfully met the special needs of the urban poor or of the rural poor who have migrated to the cities. A new strategy recommends that the poor (black or white) would be in a better position to break the poverty cycle if they were able to create their own "implanted communities" outside of existing urban complexes, with sufficient industrial and agricultural bases to make the communities largely self-sufficient. A plan for implementing establishment of the implanted communities is included in the document, as well as a bibliography dealing with the rural and urban poor. (TL)
