Feature: A planet of suburbs

The Economist has a major feature (with lots of photos) on the rise of urbanisation throughout the world and its predominant form (suburbs):

"The simple truth is that as people become richer they consume more space, just as they consume more energy, more goods and more services. Even if they live in towers, those towers are likely to be widely spaced, and the households that live in them will be small - wealth also being associated with small families."
