Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley talked about their book, The Metropolitan Revolution: How Cities and Metros are Fixing Our Broken Politics and Fragile Economies, in which they argue that American cities are devising solutions to political and social issues that the federal government won’t address. In their book, the authors examine the efforts of numerous metropolitan areas, from Houston to Denver and Boston that are respectively looking at immigration, public transportation, and the economy. Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley discussed their book with Anthony Williams, former mayor of Washington, D.C on a panel moderated by Gwen Ifill, senior correspondent for the PBS News Hour. close
