Abstract

The notion of the 15-minute city, in which people can work, shop, play and go to school within a small radius of their home, has attracted some urban planners. But now more than ever, argues Edward Glaeser (Harvard), it should be recognised as a dead end which would stop cities from fulfilling their true role as engines of opportunity.
