      Hi Eric,

      It's an interesting idea except that it doesn't create a "lean society." One
      of the more enlightened elements of Soleri's vision is the frugal or lean
      society idea. I think in Soleri's heart he is trying to create a utopian
      society that doesn't have the harsh contrast between the rich and the poor.
      To create a casino like an arcology is not looking deeply into the social
      architecture of Soleri's overall vision.

      my two cents!
