Bruce Katz: We must embrace a bold vision for U.S. metropolitan regions that encourages them to leverage their assets and transition to a new economic growth model.
Richard Daley, Mayor of Chicago: Our education system is antiquated and broken. We need to create a “learning environment,” where an entire community helps teach its children.
Michael Nutter, Mayor, Philadelphia: Extending the Bush tax cuts was the right thing for President Obama to do in order to continue certain programs such as payments for unemployed workers.

Ronald Daniels, President, Johns Hopkins University: As we think about how we’re going to plan for the future, we need to also think about the future of the urban under classes.
Derek Douglas, White House Domestic Policy Council: The Obama administration encourages the “bottom up approach,” where state and local governments address issues in their own way.
Greg Clark, London School of Economics & Political Science: Much of the explosive growth many European and Asian countries are now experiencing is due to lessons they learned from decades of U.S. expansion.
