Title: The Metropolitan Revolution: How Cites and Metros Are Fixing Our Broken Politics and Fragile Economy

Authors: Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley

Published: June 2013

Book Summary:

Communities across the nation face monumental challenges: some old, some new, but all amplified by economic downturn. Where the federal government is unable or unwilling to address growing needs in communities across the country, state and local governments have stepped up to the plate with impressive vigor and remarkable track records. Many of these communities should be suffering from failing infrastructures, a lackĀ of jobs, and an underskilled workforce, but the efforts of their local leaders are turning the tide and creating new models of metropolitan success.
