Bruce Katz, Brookings Institution: “The Metropolitan Revolution”

Much of the innovation in America today comes not from federal or state governments, but from our metropolitan areas. With Washington stuck in budget standoffs, sequestration and political gridlock, cities from New York to Portland are driving real progress in areas from cross-town transportation to international trade. Bruce Katz is Director of the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program. He is also co-author of “The Metropolitan Revolution: How Cities and Metros
Are Fixing Our Broken Politics and Fragile Economy.”
