Advancing female entrepreneurship in the developing world: A look at Africa
POSTPONED — ‘The New Localism: How cities can thrive in the age of populism’
Discussion with Muhammad Yunus on his new book ‘A World of Three Zeros’
Nonresident Senior Fellow - Global Economy and Development
In their recent book, “The New Localism,” Bruce Katz and Jeremy Nowak argue that cities and counties will be tested as never before in the coming years. They will need to innovate and reform—to pursue new strategies for growth and finance—in a fiscal environment dominated by rising health-care and pension costs. In these circumstances, the quality of metropolitan governance will matter more than ever.
“We’re at a stage of growth in our country and around the world where cities are the vanguard of problem solving,” said Katz. “The federal government, when it functions, is a health insurance company with an army.”
