ECONOMY: Is the future exclusively in cities?

Over time, history has shown that cities continue to be perceived as the El Dorado of hope for so many people who, having a difficult life in places far from the big cities, look to them as the remedy for their problems. But is it really in the cities that the solution relies upon? Cátia Batista addresses this topic and explains why there is no single answer because, just like countries, cities, and people are not all the same, circumstances also determine the possible solutions for each one.
