From Private Property to a Shared Economy feat. John Rossant

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Recording at La Kretz Innovation Campus, our guest can best be described at this moment in time through the launch of his book Hop, Skip, Go: How The Mobility Revolution is Transforming Our Lives which will be released on November 12th. You can say that this book may be the culmination of all of his work -- from his journalism days at Business Week to event production of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland to currently serving as the Founder and Chairman of the NewCities Foundation. Hop Skip Go is about the billions of people on the move. Underlying each stage of mobility -- from foot to horse to cars and jets -- are the mathematics of three fundamental variables: time, space, and money. Our guest and his co-author and business journalist, Stephen Baker, look beyond the false promises of the past to examine the real future of transportation and the repurcussions for the world's cities and the global economy. Upon graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor's in History, our guest attended the American University in Cairo where he learned the language and culture of the Arabic world. He speaks four languages -- Arabic, English, French, and Italian. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] ...
