    Katz’s 10 steps to world class recognition

    Is Philadelphia a world-class city? Could it be? Sam Katz and the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia think we’re on the right track.
    Katz, a man of many hats, outlined his list of 10 steps toward world-class recognition on today’s Philly Post.

    It all leads up to the grand event: our nation’s 250th anniversary in 2026. Katz suggests Philadelphia host a Centennial-style party. Are we ready?

    Feed the Feed: What’s one major factor you think Philadelphia needs to improve to gain world-class status? And no, Tastykakes and/or the Phillies do not factor in here. But we can’t blame you for trying.
