This week, Wisconsin School of Business Professor Steve Malpezzi is attending and blogging from the Urban Research and Knowledge Symposium Rethinking Cities: Framing the Future, organized by the World Bank and the city of Barcelona.
The event attendees include hundreds of researchers, activists, mayors, and business people. One session launched a forthcoming book called Rethinking Cities: A Roadmap Towards Better Urbanization for Development, edited by Edward Glaeser and Abha Joshi-Ghani. Malpezzi contributed a chapter of the book on housing markets and policy.
