Episode 22: How cities can save themselves, because no one else is going to by The podcast for people who expect more from Philly
David Thornburgh chats with Jeremy Nowak (at right in photo) and Bruce Katz, authors of a new book called “The New Localism.” Their thesis: Many American cities have more things going for them than they seem to realize – untapped wealth and assets that could enable them to address many of their challenges. Those cities just have to stop behaving in 20th-century ways, including waiting for federal help that isn’t coming anytime soon. Nowak and Katz talk about cities on the rise – yeah, Pittsburgh, we’re talking about you – that offer lessons in how to flip this switch.

We’re seeing this in everything from the way we educate ourselves to the tools we use to get places. The energy is coming not just from governments but also business leaders, teachers and scientists, and the solutions are interdisciplinary, too. This is what Bruce Katz, Centennial Scholar at the Brookings Institution, argues in new book, co-authored with Jeremy Nowak, The New Localism: How Cities Can Thrive in the Age of Populism.
