Event catch-up: Comeback cities

Audio, video and slides of the recent City Horizons event from renowned urban economist Professor Edward Glaeser.

Podcast published on 21 May 2015

We were delighted to welcome renowned Harvard Professor Edward Glaeser to London’s iconic Shard to discuss how cities around the world have come back from the brink, and what UK cities can learn from this.

Exploring the success of major industrial cities in the US such as New York, Boston and Seattle, as well as those with less success, Professor Glaeser unearths what helped drive some cities to become economic powerhouses of today and what stopped others from doing the same.
