Who are the world’s top thinkers? “Prospect,” a U.K.-based magazine of ideas and trends, is running a competition to select the world’s top thinkers from a shortlist of 50 people “who are leaders in their fields, engaging in original and profound ways with the central questions of the world today—whether in economics, science, philosophy, religion or feminism.”
One of them is Brookings’s own Bruce Katz, vice president and director of the Metropolitan Policy Program, and also the Adeline M. and Alfred I. Johnson Chair in Urban and Metropolitan Policy.
Visit this page to see all of the nominees and cast your vote (we hope for Bruce Katz, but you get three choices).
Katz is co-author, with Jennifer Bradley, of “The Metropolitan Revolution: How Cities and Metros Are Fixing Our Broken Politics and Fragile Economy,” as well as numerous recent articles and commentaries on devolution in Britain; federalism, and innovation districts. Also, listen to this podcast with Katz on the 21st century metro, leading America forward.
