Bruce Katz is the inaugural Centennial Scholar at the Brookings Institution, where he focuses on the challenges and opportunities of global urbanization. He also heads the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Initiative on Innovation and Placemaking, a collaboration with the New York-based Project for Public Spaces focused on cross-disciplinary approaches to city building. He is a leader in the conversation about how to build great communities. His new book The New Localism, written with Jeremy Nowak, is a fascinating look at how power is shifting down from the national level to cities and other smaller communities. This presents significant opportunities, but it requires a new pattern of thinking. On the podcast, we dig into how local communities can take advantage of this new paradigm.
