The Urban Imperative: Towards Competitive Cities

Edited by Edward Glaeser and Abha Joshi-Ghani

Monday March 9 at 11:00 PM in J1-050

While the transition from farm to city is brimming with promise, urbanization also poses enormous challenges – lack of services, congestion, pollution, and crime.

What policies can help set a favorable environment? What can make cities more competitive? This book answers these important questions and provides diverse perspectives on many others.
