Lecture of Economist "The New Localism and the Global Urban Economy": Bruce Katz

"The New Localism and the Global Urban Economy"

New Localism has emerged as the primary way that nations solve hard economic, social and environmental challenges.  Problem-solving is increasingly led from the bottom up, by cities. It is multi-sectoral; designed and delivered by public, private, civic, university and community institutions rather than government exclusively. And it tends to be more inter-disciplinary than the bureaucratic and specialized models of siloed agencies that were developed in the 20th century.  New Localism is being led by a group of vanguard cities like Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and Copenhagen, which are inventing new norms of growth, governance and finance that are then adapted and adopted by cities across the world.
