One of the main topics at this years American Dream Coalition Conference in Minneapolis, MN will be Regionalism vs. Decentralization of government.

Myron Orfield, a state legislator from Minneapolis and author of an influential text on metropolitan government, will argue in favor of regional consolidation of government and champion the views of David Rusk.
Randal O'Toole will be presenting the argument for decentralization.
