- “A modern classic. Few books have so quickly and effectively reshaped our dialogue and assumptions about the future of economic development.” – Tim Fields, Assistant Administrator for Solid Waste & Emergency Response, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
- “The most important and valuable business book I have read in many years.” – Don Pross, Director of Planning & Real Estate Development for Amtrak
- “This book is an original, a first! I profited from it greatly, and I quote from it in my speeches.” – William H. Hudnut III, former 4-term Mayor of Indianapolis, Senior Fellow – Urban Land Institute; Past President – National League of Cities
Many publications gave the book highly-positive reviews, such as Forbes and Urban Land. One of them was Environmental Business Journal (EBJ), whose readers enjoyed the book so much that Storm was invited to keynote EBJ’s annual conference in San Diego.
Now, not long after the book’s 15th anniversary (it’s still in print and selling well), the publishers of Environmental Business Journal asked Storm to write a follow-up feature article for their readers, who are mostly Fortune 1000 executives.
The title is “The Restoration Economy 15 Years Later: Improving the Process of Revitalizing Places.” It appeared in the current (August 2018) issue of EBJ.
But the cheapest subscription level of EBJ is $1250/year, so the publishers have kindly provided a PDF reprint of Storm’s article so you can enjoy it here without subscribing to EBJ.
