A chapter in The Next Agenda: Blueprint for the New Progressive Movement, is a discussion of the challenges, including poverty, housing, transportation, and demographic factors, that metropolitan regions face. The next urban agenda should consist of the things it takes to harness the economic power of metro areas, improve the quality and equity of life within them, and move the country more generally onto the high-road of shared prosperity.
