Why the Drive to “Grow this City”?

Why the drive to “grow this city?”

Is it because it makes us better people? Does it make us more honest or honorable or loving?

No. It’s because it creates a bigger market in which to make money. And while money is a necessity, it is surely not the proper priority in life. Yet it ranks far too high. And so goes the drive to “grow this city”, while you’ll probably never hear of any initiative aimed at growing our character.
