Global Prosperity Wonkcast

+ Brandon Fuller

Lawrence MacDonald of the Center for Global Development interviews Paul about charter cities in the latest Global Prosperity Wonkcast. The discussion ranges from desalination, to formal sector employment opportunities, to the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands, to urban density, to storm surge, to the great state of Pennsylvania.

“…just because something is unfamiliar that doesn’t mean it’s inconceivable or it can’t happen…[T]hink more broadly [about] challenges that look intractable — poverty, the environment, green globalization, an urbanization wave of 3 billion people. If we open up our notion of what’s possible then these intractable problems look like real opportunities that could reshape the globe and change history.”
