In the history of America, Detroit municipal bankruptcy was the largest bankruptcy filed in 2013, wherein city leaders slashed municipal costs, attracting private investment and in the same year economically resurgent New York City elected a progressive mayor intent on reducing income inequality and spurring more equitable economic development. This raises a fundamental question: Can American cities govern, or are they powerless in the face of global capital? Conventional economic wisdom asserts that cities cannot do very much and political wisdom shows that cities should not do very much. In this book Richard Schragger challenges both these assumptions to say that cities can govern, but only if we let them.
