Today the Financial Times published my oped on the shifting nature of power in the world: https://www.ft.com/content/8e4bd766-6e27-11e7-b9c7-15af748b60d0
As we finish our upcoming book, The New Localism: How Cities Can Thrive in the Age of Populism, Jeremy Nowak and I are beginning to highlight the norms of city-driven growth, governance and finance that are emerging across the globe to resolve some of the most world’s complex challenges.
New Localism is the 21st century means of solving the problems characteristic of modern life including economic competitiveness, poverty, the challenges of social diversity and the imperatives of environmental sustainability.
The message being broadcast? Power increasingly belongs to the problem solvers and problem solvers now congregate at the local levels of our cities and metropolitan areas.
