About the Show

This week on the show we'll have a conversation with our favorite economist:Joe Cortright of Impresa Consulting.  He'll talk to us about a new study title "Walking the Walk" that shows how homes in more walkable neighborhoods are more valuable than those in more car-dependent neighborhoods.

And we'll talk to Susanne Dirks from IBM.  The company recently released its first "Smarter Cities" study about the ways in which technology can help cities lead the way to a prosperous and sustainable future.
