" The Metropolitan Revolution upends conventional wisdom and makes the case for how our cities and metros are leading American change and progress: they are transforming our national economy, political conversation, and collective destiny from the bottom up like never before. A must-read for anyone working toward a brighter future for our cities and our nation." --Mayor Cory Booker " The Metropolitan Revolution builds on twenty years of studying metropolitan areas and hundreds of thousands of miles traveling to them around the globe, and the result is an exciting guide to the new world economy - urban, networked, innovative, collaborative, and driven by human potential." --Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Henry G. Cisneros "Being mayor of Chicago is the best job I've ever had in public life. Katz and Bradley totally get it: the real power to change America lies in our cities and metros." --Mayor Rahm Emanuel "With paralysis in Washington, public policy solutions will come from successful metropolitan regions, the clinical trials of our future. We are well into this journey, but never has it been explained with such insight and analysis until The Metropolitan Revolution." --Governor Jon Huntsman "Just when 'by the people, for the people' seems like an anachronism, cities are giving it new meaning, fueled by twenty-first century technology. Every citizen needs to understand the metropolitan revolution. If we change cities, we change the country." --Jennifer Pahlka, Founder and Executive Director, Code for America "This book captures the energy and excitement bubbling up in cities across America. This is 'do it yourself' urbanism of the highest order, and it is altering our landscape and our country." --Janette Sadik-Khan, Commissioner, New York City Department of Transportation "Through real-world examples, The Metropolitan Revolution brings to life how America's cities and suburbs drive innovation to solve problems and seize opportunities. This book is a call to action beyond Washington, where metro leaders join together and simply get stuff done." --Mayor Scott Smith " The Metropolitan Revolution is compelling reading on how our federal system is a powerful advantage in global competitiveness. This book is indispensable for business and elected leaders on realizing the economic potential of metropolitan areas for their citizens and the country." --Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin "Devolving power to cities and metropolitan areas is a development that we rightly ought to celebrate, as Bradley and Katz do." --Ike Brannon, CATO Institute, Regulation

nice governments doing good things 23. August 2013
Von Michael Lewyn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Most of the book is a description of various noble-sounding activities performed by various local governments (or in some cases, large local employers or foundations): for example, New York's subsidies to a large university to build a campus in the city, Denver's city/suburb cooperation in transportation, and a Houston nonprofit that educates immigrants and performs other good deeds throughout the Houston region. For a local official hunting for ideas, this might be a pretty useful book.

Having said that, I think the book's overall thesis (that cities will take the lead in creative policies) is a bit optimistic. City governments are just as broke as state governments- in fact, they may even be more fiscally constrained, because the state government has the right to deprive city governments of revenue in a wide variety of ways. For example, state officials (even Democrats) frequently whack away at cities' tax bases by telling cities how and how much they can tax. In addition, state governments tend to be especially biased against large central cities, because of our nation's tradition of poisonous suburban/urban rivalry and because of the power of the road lobby (which usually favors turning central cities into giant expressway ramps).

An eye opener. 30. August 2013
Von William H Morling - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book shows that we don't need to depend on a dysfunctional federal government (also, in most cases, state governments) to get done what is needed for our society and economy. The Federal approach - one size fits all - is an obvious failure, even without the parochial bickering, and the examples of cooperation within metropolitan areas is very refreshing.

Apposite for these difficult times 7. November 2013
Von A. Tait - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A remarkably apposite book in these difficult times. The common thread is cooperation among organizations (businesses, non-profits, local governments, etc) which once competed. Simply put, in today's economic environment, metropolitan areas can achieve far more through cooperation within themselves because then "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts". Another key conclusion is that solving the problems takes time - think 10, 15, 20 years or more.

The authors also make the valuable point that neither state governments nor the federal government are going to solve a particular area's problems. They may provide funding but little else.

This book is not a recipe for solving a specific area's problems but it provides a framework for developing a solution.

A way forward! 19. Juni 2013
Von JRT_DC - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I found Katz & Bradley's vision so compelling: civic, corporate, education, philathropic leaders in metro areas looking to each other to advance their regions, rather than looking to Washington; a smaller federal stance that is focused on supporting states and cities; understanding that the world is driven by a network of trading cities -- a new take on the old silk road. It's great move through an affirmative vision that's also grounded in the real world. I'm ready for the Revolution!

I also visited their website and was directed to the (free) iPad. Another great take on this compelling material.

A well thought out and motivating call to action by Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley 15. August 2013
Von Irene Garcia - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Metropolitan Revolution. The authors of this work depart from the dysfunctional U.S. federal system to highlight the revolution taking place at another level: the metro area level, where great efforts are being made to revive the economy. To illustrate this, the first part of the book resorts to specific metros with successful stories such as New York, Denver, Northeast Ohio and Houston, where a broad network of leaders have pragmatically joint forces to overcome the partisan divide, taken on the metros' main challenges and moved forward. But, far from seeking a one-size-fits-all model for metros, the authors focus on the process through which these cities built on their capabilities and efficiently made use of the infrastructure they had to become tales of success. Their goal, and this is their most valuable contribution, is to value compromise and show that another way of framing urbanism and economic growth in the post-recession environment is possible. To dig further into the repositioning and revaluation metro areas are going through, the second part of the book explores the role they play in today's innovative economy and how megatrends will reshape their physical and social landscape. Totally worth reading!
