Bicycling, Gentrification, NYPD, Donald Trump, Oh My!

  • 0:00 – About me
  • 3:30 – Challenges facing cities
  • 5:20 – The limited power of city governments
  • 7:45 – Reinventing NYC and success at crime reduction
  • 10:15 – Crime in Chicago

  • 15:28 – Millennial life cycle
  • 17:45 – Bike lanes – “The overwrought opposition to bicycling is almost comical”
  • 21:02 – Gentrification
  • 28:55 – Infrastructure and how to pay for it
  • 34:50 – The urban regulatory state
  • 38:45 – My podcast with my father about why the Republican base hates the GOP establishment and loves Donald Trump
