Block Level Planning

Economic planning should start at the level where the expertise of local people can best solve economic problems and create prosperity according to local needs.

So the most basic level of planning for most purposes is that of the block. A block is a political unit of at least 100,000 people, the boundaries of which are determined on the basis of geographic factors, similar socioeconomic factors, and common economic problems and potentialities.
