Jane Jacobs: Urban Wisdom Screener

Through her groundbreaking books, Jane Jacobs has influenced the planning and understanding of cities and economies with what she calls a web way of thinking. In this program, Jacobs shares her insights into urban planning by tracing the progression of ideas in her books, including The Death and Life of Great American Cities; The Economy of Cities; Cities and the Wealth of Nations; Systems of Survival; and her most recent, The Nature of Economies. An extended interview with Jacobs is blended with scenes from various North American cities and footage of her 1997 seminar, “Ideas That Matter.”
