Smart growth promises to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution and improve open space and quality of life. It does none of these things. It opens the door to corruption and is highly discriminatory.
It is a total fraud and it is costing the American taxpayer billions of dollars annually and a loss of our constitutional freedoms. Dr. Coffman graphically details step by step what smart growth promises and how it can never live up to its warm promises. He reveals how it squanders billions of dollars in projects no American would support if they knew their staggering costs. The most important cost, however, is a hidden cost. By its very application, smart growth shifts control of private property rights from the individual to the government.
