Bruce Katz on Metro Regions and the Next Economy

Ian Scott on Friday, October 22, 2010 at 5:15:08 pm

Watch the Brookings Institution’s Bruce Katz in a video for Time explain how metros must leverage their assets and invest in infrastructure to prosper in the globally competitive 21st Century economy.  This is gut check level stuff.

Some salient quotes:

 “There is no national economy… national economies are just networks of metropolitan economies.”

 “For metropolitan areas to succeed then need to know who they are in the global market.  They need to know what makes them distinctive.”

 “If we want to compete in this century we have to build an economy that is driven by exports.”
