Obama on Urban Policy from the Campaign

Via Streetsblog we learned of the below video of Barack Obama talking about urban policy on the campaign trail this past year. Most interesting is that Obama knows that the questioner is holding Jane Jacobs Death and Life of Great American Cities before being told so. What this actually means is yet to be seen.

  1. Jane Jacobs was a great social observer. It’s fantastic that Obama has read her work. I feel confident that he has not only read it, but understands her concepts as well.
