Monday's bombing in Manchester, England, shows the global war on terrorism has been unsuccessful thus far in stopping extremist violence. Today, former Department of State advisor Steven Koltai suggests a new approach to stopping the bloodshed: encouraging entrepreneurship. Then, we continue the conversation surrounding a proposed redesign of KCI, and get Kansas City Mayor Sly James' thoughts on a new single-terminal proposal from architecture and engineering firm Burns & McDonnell. 

Steven Koltai discusses his book "Peace through Entrepreneurship: Investing in a Startup Culture for Security and Developmentat the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24. For more information, visit ​KCLibrary.org.
