  • Stafford Beer and Jane Jacobs both lived in the same neighbourhood (The Annex) in Toronto.
  • They knew each other, but never really collaborated.
  • Stafford used Cities and the Wealth of Nations as part of the recommendations for Uruguay.
  • There was a challenge to Jane Jacobs' credibility, because she was using a Switzerland comparison that referred to mountains, and Uruguay is flat as a pancake.
