Geoffrey West: The surprising math of cities and corporations
As many have said, this presentation ignores close of a century of research in sociology and urban planning, history and design. If you are interested, off the top of my head, look up David Harvey, Lewis Mumford or Manuel Castells. Two comments I feel need to be made. First, the problem is population growth and a correlated growth in healthy educated people and not urbanization. Yes, cities behave like organic organisms. After all, they are made and run by organic organisms.

Where do you live, and why?
The movement is still slow and small, but there are a few "suburbs" that are being built these days with being able to walk or ride a bike everywhere as the underlying design.

Harald, While that makes sense in a theoretical way, think about the numbers involved. In the US alone, there are close to 320M people. There is 10M k^^2. That is 3K^^2 per person. Take away the land that is not habitable. And the land needed for infrastructure, industry, food production. The rural/urban migration is about a lot of things. One of them is efficiency.

Geoffrey West: The surprising math of cities and corporations
Nothing new or mind bending here. Academics in sociology, urban planning, organizational research have noted these patterns decades ago. More importantly, he is missing an underlying assumption. The problem is population growth with urbanization as an indicator. While living in the country is nice, living in the city is more sustainable once the population levels pass a non-technology carrying capacity.
