Since the Industrial Revolution, most of the world’s largest cities have been in rich, industrialized countries. But increasingly, developing-country megacities are surpassing their developed country counterparts in terms of population. The rapid urbanization of low-income countries imposes unique challenges to the environment, public health, and access to economic opportunities.
In this talk, Zou will discuss how good urban economic policies can address those challenges.
Zou is an empirical economist with research interests in labor economics, urban economics and economic development. He joined the Daniels School of Business last year, coming to us from Michigan State University. He teaches urban economics at Purdue
