Scandinavia's Small Towns | Scandinavia and Iceland

Scandinavia's Small Towns | Scandinavia and Iceland: "Town planners and government officials may think in terms of economic rationality and viability. But as more people move to the cities, perhaps we should raise our caps to those who stick it out in their small towns. They might be waging a losing battle, perhaps, and also costing taxpayers a bit more money, but they sure make the world a more interesting and diverse place. And if, in the future, hordes of Somalis and Iraqis, Philippinos and Thais, are all residing out in the sticks in Scandinavia’s far-flung regions, then all the better I say."

The logic shown by the different sides of this article is unexpected. Something to watch for maybe.
