Designing Private Cities, Open to All - NYTimes.com

Interesting article. I've lived (more than three years) in Rome, Sydney, New York, London, Tokyo and Hong Kong. In all, the local services have been government councils.
Now I live in a part of Hong Kong which is a privately designed and privately run "city" of 17,000 on Lantau Island.
And I can say this: we are better run, more efficiently run and more economically run than any of the places I've lived in.
Private cities are the way to go.
