Charter Cities

Geoffrey West has done a lot of work at Sante Fe, being able to relate city values to many other factors, UTAP. Article in New York Times, his website here.

He has many ideas 'in principle' and suggests a 'charter city' in India, with 10 million people, 100 per hectare. This would be Govt planned.

IMO: Plenty of Govts would like to plan a city that size. India's experience with the SEZs suggests that, apart from cost, presumably met by Sante Fe, there are many difficulties and these can vary enormously, e.g. compare Sativali and Verna.
