Forbes: Mayor as CEO


We at Rust Wire have certainly done our share of beating up on Forbes Magazine on this blog.

But here’s an interesting editorial by Aaron Renn on the “mayor as CEO” idea, and the importance of a city’s strategy and “brand.”

And before you tell me, “We’ve heard a million times already how cities should be run more efficiently and business-like,” just read the piece. This isn’t the usual “lessons cities can learn from the private sector” story.

One response to “Forbes: Mayor as CEO

  1. The author has a blog called Urbanophile which tends to focus on urban issues in the Midwest and former Rust Belt. A must read, IMHO.
