Governments are massive, bureaucratic, filled-with-red-tape organizations that can’t move the needle to effectively serve their constituents, right?

Well, maybe not.

This week’s guest, Bruce Katz and his co-author Jeremy Nowak challenge starters to think about government differently and to approach their local communities as a Startup that can be built from the bottom-up.

We discuss their brand new book “The New Localism” and discuss what it looks like when the principles of entrepreneurship are applied to developing cities (and city-states) both in America and abroad.

This episode is a must-listen for those of you who want to improve your city, be a part of real political change, or just enjoy social economics. Enjoy!
