I'm always hearing from people (who, perhaps tellingly, are not planners) that there are going to be huge numbers of planning jobs in the near future in rapidly developing countries like India, China, Brazil, and Russia (and I've even heard France will have a lot due to a major master plan of Paris that's in the works?). Is this boom something that will actually happen, and is this something that North American planners would be able to tap into? I'm someone who's very interested in going to school for planning (especially transportation), but very wary with all the well-founded naysaying out there. I speak French and Hindi, so I'm intrigued by the notion of working in one of these countries. Anyone know much about this?
