Despite the transforming effect of digital technologies and the rise of new economies in the global East and South, leading western capitals like New York, London and Paris remain important centres of the global economy. However, globalisation is bringing enormous challenges, with rising inequalities, growing populations and rising living costs putting huge pressures on citizens and services. Housing is a particular challenge, one of the biggest issues London faces, with demand increasing much faster than supply.
Carl Weisbrod presents on what New York can do / are doing to meet these challenges and create neighbourhoods that work for everyone.
