Urban expert Bruce Katz has noticed a change in how our world is structured. National states and governments no longer hold the central power to fix our modern world. Cities and metropolitan regions, he says, are now in charge of their own futures.

Why Your City Can Solve The World’s Problems
As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, cities – not nations – are seeing their power grow. That’s according to Bruce Katz, a global urbanization expert at the Brookings Institution. He joins us to talk about how cities can tackle everything from economic disparity to environmental sustainability, which he and co-author Jeremy Nowak write about in “The New Localism: How Cities Can Thrive in the Age of Populism” (Brookings).
