Earlier this week we told you about a recent report called "What Matters to Metros," that explores how different economic variables factor in the success or failure of cities. It was published by the Fund For Our Economic Future, a philanthropic collaboration to foster and guide economic development in Northeast Ohio. '
The Fund - and Cleveland - figure prominently in a new book co-authored by Bruce Katz of the Brookings Institution called The Metropolitan Revolution: How Cities and Metros are Fixing Our Broken Politics and Fragile Economy. ideastream's Bill Rice recently spoke with Katz about the emerging role of cities in the wake of the Great Recession.
