"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
Today, more than 50 percent the world's population lives in cities. By 2030, 60 percent will be urban...70 percent by 2050. China alone is planning to move a quarter of a billion people from rural to urban areas by 2025. But this isn't a phenomenon happening just in emerging markets or developing countries. Even in a country like the United States that is already 80 percent or so urban, people are still moving to the cities – at a rate of more than 1 percent each year.
What does it all mean? Fareed speaks with Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley from the Brookings Institution, who co-wrote “The Metropolitan Revolution," Leigh Gallagher, an assistant managing editor at Fortune, and Joel Kotkin, a distinguished fellow in urban futures at Chapman University and the author of The Next Hundred Million: America in 2050.
