    Recommended Summer Books
    Despite many predictions of the decline of books and reading, it seems like the reading public is as strong as ever-with paper books leading the way. According to a recent study, younger people prefer reading paper books to e-books; it's some of the older folks who see the advantages of the light weight and text-size changing possibilities of the Kindles and Nooks of the world.

Turning Around Urban Decline

Published on

    Turning Around Urban Decline
    We've all seen the photos of Detroit when it was at its lowest point after the 2008 recession: street after street of vacant lots and abandoned homes-a city in visible decline. It might have been the poster child for urban blight, but those problems are more common than one would think in poor neighborhoods in many medium-sized cities around the country.

Why the Price of Oil Is Rising

    Why the Price of Oil Is Rising
    It's hard not to notice rising gas prices as we head to the pumps-and they have indeed been climbing. A year ago, a gallon cost about $2.40; now it's closer to $3. The price of oil is at the root of that rise, of course, going from about $45 a barrel to around $70 in the same time period.
