The New Atlantis: Charter Cities

Beneath the Surface: An Infrastructure Podcast | 5 May 2022 | 0h 40m | Listen Later | Podcasts | Spotify
Each year, tens of millions of people migrate from rural areas to cities—mostly in emerging economies, where populations are growing faster than governments can create basic infrastructure. To address the challenges of urbanization without industrialization, development experts, economists, and policymakers have proposed solutions spanning from increased immigration to better family planning.

This episode considers whether charter cities could be a path to accelerating growth in emerging economies.

This is the first episode of a new podcast from Stripe Press on infrastructure.
