It can be a good idea.  But then again it could be a bad idea if things ever get out of hand.  Its happened in the past where old mining communities basically enslaved their workers and also payed them in company credits that were only valid in the stores owned by the companies.  It probably would not have been an issue if the credits were equal to the rate of currency at the time, but it wasn't.  They earned the equivalent to pennies a day.

Luckily we live in an age where people have a better understanding of human rights, so it has a good chance of succeeding.

I personally think it is a great idea to "revitalize" the cities that have gone "down the tubes", so to speak, in the last 30+ years, but ONLY those types of cities!

When some of these million/billion dollar Internet companies start looking at pristine areas of the country/world that should be left alone because their "pristiness" (not a real word but you know what I mean) and natural beauty is what draws people to it (think Hawaii). Building resorts and non-employee living facilities where none existed before and/or family homes of all kinds (with the inevitable retail developments) only increases the unwanted things that the majority of the local/residents don't want or need.

Imagine one of the most beautiful places in the world such as the north shore of Kauai, Hawaii having a resort and new homes built where none existed before! Instead of being able to sit on the beach and look around at the natural beauty, one sees nothing natural at all and only buildings that sit there only 50% occupied. Nothing good comes from that so keep these "revitalizing projects" to those places that actually and desperately NEEDS them. PLEASE!

This is actually a very good concept and I am in favor of it. Walmart should take note and provide the same for their hard working employees. They are definitely places where I wouldn't mind living. It could revitalize American cities. They're all sort of an upscale, elite village type setting where everyone cares about their neighbor and coworkers. Great!

Zuckerburg? How creepy is that? Just what I DON'T want - my employers and coworkers knowing when and where I shop, eat and socialize
