Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found

Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found

Speaking Topics
  • Global City

    The UN forecasts that 60% of the world's population will be living in cities by 2030. Two billion people will be living in slums. As companies move capital and jobs across borders, the desperation of slum-dwellers in cities like Bombay will directly affect the economic fortunes of US cities. The UN also warns that these slums could be breeding grounds for extremism.

    Mehta addresses such vital questions as: What is the future of the City? What's working and what's not in cities like Bombay or Lagos? How will people in New York or London deal with market opportunity in the developing world?
