Professor Edward Glaeser argues that cities are not the dirty, poor, sickly, and environmentally unfriendly places that many believe them to be. Glaeser is a professor of economics at Harvard University and has traveled the world studying the economics and demographics of urban areas. His book is "Triumph of the City: How Our Greatest Invention Makes Us Richer, Smarter, Greener, Healthier, and Happier."
