As part of BusinessWeek's quarterly "Fix This" feature, the magazine is tackling the troubles of urban planning around the world. They've put together a panel of experts to address a number of issues, including how car-centric should our cities be? are cities a reflection of their people? and the below video discussing the challenges of urban planning today. We're not gonna lie, the panel discussions are real snoozers (and we eat this stuff up), so grab a pot of coffee, preferably with a two to one ratio of sugar to coffee, curl up on your couch and get ready to fight the droopy eyelids. But its well worth your effort and you'll probably learn something deep and meaningful.
