The question is whether Gehry and the other mega projects can, starting from scratch, capture the magic Downtown is already generating. Will they selfishly corral pedestrians? Will they be bunkers and monoliths? Will L.A. commit the same old errors?
For too long, L.A. businesses have been stolen from us by other cities and states. The result has been a calamitous decline in both jobs and tax revenues in our city, causing huge strains on our budget.
We have become a nation that ponders everything and resolves nothing. What more proof do you want than this Notice from the SEC purporting to establish a Joint CFTC-SEC Advisory Committee on Emerging Regulatory Issues?
