Join us for a conversation with Alan Mallach on his latest book, The Divided City: Poversity and Prosperity in Urban America in an event co-hosted by The Century Foundation and the Regional Plan Association.
The factories may be gone, but millennials are flocking to affordable, once-industrial cities like Newark, Baltimore and Pittsburgh. But alongside their revival, these cities are turning into places of growing inequality, where small, glittering enclaves of prosperity are ringed by larger areas of decline, and millions are relegated to lives of poverty and hopelessness. Alan Mallach, a leading authority on economics and urban revitalization, shows how these cities have come to where they are today, why some have succeeded in creating a more inclusive prosperity while others have not, and how we can help other cities to become places of hope and opportunity.
