In a hard-hitting analysis of the issues, this program assembles a wide-ranging set of opinions from scholars and experts-as well as from ordinary individuals around the world who face urban hardships and obstacles to their livelihoods every day. Commentators include economists Jeffrey Sachs and 2008 Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman; Prof. Sakika Fukuda Parr, former editor of the UN Development Program's Human Development Report; and World Bank President Robert Zoellick. City residents, favela dwellers, and itinerant merchants in India, Turkey, Nigeria, Brazil, and China have their say.
