Triumph of the City (Rebroadcast) Our guest today says that he has proof that the CITY is humanity's greatest invention, and is our best hope for the future. Harvard Professor Ed Glaeser has studied urban economics for years, and in his research has found that, contrary to popular belief, cities are the healthiest, richest, and GREENEST places in the world to live. This is good news, since more than two thirds of us live on the three percent of land on which our cities are contained. We'll talk about cities, and why Mr. Glaeser says that they are our best paths towards an environmentally sustainable future.
