Ed Glaeser's Condliffe Memorial Lecture is now up at the University's "What If?" site. I've embedded it below.
I tell my students of the Pantheon of the Econ-Gods. Ed Glaeser is one of our Elder Gods - fueled not by the apples of the Hesperides but rather by Diet Coke.
Ed had a ridiculously busy day prior to his talk at Canterbury. He started with a tour of downtown with CERA, chipped in for a documentary somebody was making, lunched with a bunch of architects, provided a seminar for the Department, gave an interview for a freelancer for The Listener at the Staff Club, then the Condliffe. Then off for breakfast with Roger Sutton in the morning.
There are a lot of fans of Glaeser's approach to urbanism around the country. Let's hope it's done some good!
