In his new book, Triumph of the City, Harvard economist Ed Glaeser argues that we’re healthier and happier in the dense, buzzing, hubs of activity. He writes that that the role of cities is to enrich humanity. From Manhattan to Mumbai, great cities --electrified by human interaction and innovation –attract talented people encourage entrepreneurship, and provide greater opportunities for social and economic mobility. This hour, to mark WGBH’s series on local cities and towns, we’ll get Glaeser’s take on where Boston has thrived and failed as an American City.
