In this age of isolation, are we on the brink of a post-urban world? In Survival of the City by Edward Glaeser and David Cutler, one of our great urbanists and one of our great public health experts join forces to reckon with how cities are changing in the face of currents that the pandemic has intensified. Glaeser and Cutler, both professors of economics at Harvard University, explore how cities can evolve, how they must address deep inequities in health care and education, and how to design policies that will expand jobs and economic opportunities. They join in a discussion of these urgent topics with Michelle GoldbergNew York Times columnist and author of the recent The Goddess PosePaul Krugman, distinguished professor of economics at the CUNY Graduate Center and New York Times columnist; and J. Phillip Thompson, New York City deputy mayor for strategic policy initiatives (Ph.D. ’90, Political Science, CUNY Graduate Center). 
 
Presented with the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality.
