If Mayors Ruled the World: Dysfunctional Nations, Rising Cities

Description

In the face of the most perilous challenges of our time, the nations of the world seem paralyzed. Is the nation-state, once democracy's best hope, now democratically dysfunctional? Obsolete? The answer is yes, says Benjamin R. Barber. Can cities and the mayors who run them do a better job?

Benjamin R. Barber is senior research scholar, The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society of The Graduate Center, The City University of New York. He is the author of If Mayors Ruled the World: Dysfunctional Nations, Rising Cities and the best-selling Jihad vs. McWorld.

Speaker: Benjamin R. Barber
