Steven Pedigo, Director of the LBJ Urban Lab at the University of Texas at Austin and Non-Resident Fellow at the NYU Urban Lab, joins Sam Chandan to discuss A Playbook for Resiliency, co-authored with Kirk Watson, Dean of the Hobby School at the University of Houston, former Mayor of Austin, and former State Senator for the Austin region. Professor Pedigo discusses recommendations for Texas' long-term growth strategy, how those recommendations can inform policymaking in cities across the country, and which cities are best-positioned to attract businesses and jobs in the post-pandemic environment.
