Sometimes it really does take a village. In 1997, the residents of Wildpoldsried, a Bavarian farming community of about 2,600 people, identified goals for revenue generation, local business development, and infrastructure. The idea was to proceed carefully, avoid massive debt, and let the rewards accumulate gradually over the coming decades. By May 2011, the town was not only on its way to realizing all its goals, it had generated about $5.7 million in revenue.
