Ed Glaeser was last night at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. A comedy show based on news that I always find funny. I started watching it when I went to study to the US in 2003, a that time I was surprised how they criticize the Bush administration. Anyways, yesterday Glaeser went to the show, one of the economists I like to follow. So Ed Glaeser and Jon Stewart, a perfect mix. He was promoting his very interesting book “Triumph of the City: How Our Greatest Invention Makes Us Richer, Smarter, Greener, Healthier and Happier” Penguin. I think it’s a book I’d like to read. See today’s book review at The Economist. I would say his approached looked a little bit like Richard Florida’s love for urban areas, and that’s great we need many more guys supporting the concept of the cities from different points of view

I was surprised how young he is. I always pictured him as a 60 yeard old guy.

Here it is a podcast of Ed Glaeser in Freakonomics: Why Cities Rock. From February 18. I really liked it. I didn’t like some stuff, but I enjoyed the idea of building up in San Francisco Bay Area.
