The article presents information on the project called "Charter Cities" launched by economist Paul Romer to encourage developing nations to surrender uninhabited coastlines as independent districts, where rich nations and large corporations can invest and develop export-led economies. Romer believes that as the city will prosper, economic zones would spring up around it and which will eventually lead to broader national prosperity. He thinks that there is nothing wrong with urban migration.
