Chair: David Milne
“Edward Glaeser is one of the world’s most brilliant economists, and Triumph of the City is a masterpiece. Seamlessly combining economics and history, he explains why cities are ‘our species’ greatest invention.” (Steven Levitt) Launching himself on a grand international tour from past to present, and across continents, he takes us on a thrilling ride around the world’s great cities, challenging so many conventions. The book bursts with insights and provocative arguments, making it an engrossing read. The debate now is whether the lure of the city has lost its appeal in the face of worldwide pandemics and the planet’s climate crisis.
