Talking Headways: A Streetsblog Podcast

The Talking Headways podcast is a weekly podcast about transportation and urban design.

Oct 13, 2022

This week we’re joined by Diana Ramirez, Executive Director of the Harris County Department of Economic Equity and Opportunity, former Salt Lake County Mayor and Congressman Ben McAdams, Matt Prewitt, President of RadicalxChange and Joel Rogers, Director of COWS at the University of Wisconsin Madison to talk about how cities can understand the public wealth owned by our cities.  We talk about how cities can create inventories of existing assets to generate public wealth and how economic value can be harnessed for public good.

Two articles referenced in this show:

How To Harness Cities’ Hidden Public Wealth - NOEMA Magazine

Putting Assets to Work - Government Finance Officers Association
