Join the Board of Trade and TD Bank on Tuesday, May 22nd as we welcome authors Bruce Katz and Jeremy Nowak. In their new book, The New Localism: How Cities Can Thrive in the Age of Populism, they reveal where the real power to create change lies and how it can be used to address our most serious social, economic, and environmental challenges.
Katz and Nowak tell the stories of the cities that are on the vanguard of problem solving. Pittsburgh is catalyzing inclusive growth by inventing and deploying new industries and technologies. Indianapolis is governing its city and metropolis through a network of public, private and civic leaders. Copenhagen is using publicly owned assets like their waterfront to spur large scale redevelopment and finance infrastructure from land sales.
Out of these stories emerge new norms of growth, governance, and finance and a path toward a more prosperous, sustainable, and inclusive society. Katz and Nowak imagine a world in which urban institutions finance the future through smart investments in innovation, infrastructure and children and urban intermediaries take solutions created in one city and adapt and tailor them to other cities with speed and precision.As Katz and Nowak show us in The New Localism, "Power now belongs to the problem solvers."

Join the Board of Trade and TD Bank on Thursday, June 22nd as we welcome award-winning producer and journalist Chris Whipple. He demonstrates in his new book, The Gatekeepers: How the White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every Presidency, how those appointed to this lofty position have often served as de facto prime ministers, and the surprising extent to which their tenures have set the tone for our political climate. Through extensive, intimate interviews with all 20 living chiefs of staff and two former presidents, The Gatekeepers pulls back the curtain to expose how the nation’s levers of power are operated by these right-hand advisors, and what each appointment reveals about its respective president.
