Bikes are pretty cool, but if American cities really want to learn something from Copenhagen, it’s how to build a city for young families. Those young people pouring into your cities are going to leave just as fast if you don’t build the city for the families they’ll soon have.

Here’s a good rule: no more stadiums, TIF districts, or tax breaks until crime is under control and urban schools meet basic standards. City officials: Those shiny corporate headquarters won’t mean jack if no one wants to live in your city because your schools are worthless. And don’t you dare claim you don’t have money to focus on people like that, you’re blowing plenty more trying to attract Fortune 500’s.
