Planning For neighborhoods

Thomas Sowell's newest article concerns planning of communities. Recently my school's newspaper published an article about the same topic although the paper was advocating that the school not build a new set of buildings and rent out the bottom floor to businesses to earn more money for the school. The piece said that the university was damaging the neighborhood's diversity. I wrote in a response to the paper, that if the people of the community don't like the new businesses then simply don't shop there and then their old favorites will still be open. It's rediculous that people don't understand that capitalism is one of the best ways to give people complete personal control.
