"Boom Towns: Restoring the Urban American Dream"

Baltimore, Md.
Baltimore, Md.

Stephen Walters, an economist who’s made a name for himself advising major-league baseball clubs and advocating for property-tax revolts, truly loves cities.  He believes cities are concentrations of human, social and physical capital that can transform lives. He's distilled his ideas for reinvigorating American cities into his new book "Boom Towns: Restoring the Urban American Dream."

Walters is a professor of economics at Loyola University Maryland and a Fellow at the Johns Hopkins Institute for Applied Economics, Global Health and the Study of Business Enterprise.
