That New England

Overseen By Robert Whitcomb

Good article by Shannon Mullen in the latest Boston Magazine about the astonishing high-tech wealth-creation machine burgeoning around Cambridge’s Kendall Square.

Truly glittering! We took a tour a few months ago.

Also fine piece by Jason Schwartz on the Wampanoags’ push for a casino in southeastern Massachusetts. Too bad that unlike high tech, casinos don’t create wealth except for the owners/operators, and the latter tend to live far away — where  much of the revenue goes. Generally for the broader community, casinos tend to decrease wealth and increase social problems.

Still if people wanna gamble, let ‘em gamble….

Everyone wants a surprise under the Christmas tree!
