Data-Smart City Pod: Economic Growth through the Adjacent Possible

In this conversation with HKS Professor Steve Goldsmith, Ricardo Hausmann discusses the Growth Lab's new Metroverse tool, a powerful yet easy-to-use data visualization of urban economies across the globe. Built for policy makers, economist, communities, and businesses, the Metroverse places a city’s current technological and economic capabilities in context, showing how and where any specific urban economy can move into it's "adjacent possible" growth areas.
