Repairing The Economy With City Policies

Jan 10, 2014

The economy has been in trouble for a while — that's no secret. But a new idea about the "metropolitan revolutions" proposes investments in things like infrastructure and manufacturing on a city level.

Bruce Katz is the co-author of 'The Metropolitan Revolution: How Cities Are Fixing Our Broken Politics and Fragile Economy.'

In the first part of Monday's Up to Date, we talk about the implications of this philosophy and where it could lead.
