This webinar discussion will center on big financial institutions, conglomerates, and large-sized entities (big government, big labor unions, etc.), which are usually powerful and pose a systematic risk to the economies. Policy options of dealing with large entities will also be discussed.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • In the course of the next 20 years, the entire urban-built area in developing countries alone will triple if current trends continue.
  • We will need four earths to support the urbanization of developing cities if they follow the pattern of developed countries.

While not a new phenomenon, crime and violence have increased dramatically in recent decades and are now recognized as serious economic and social problems, particularly in urban areas. In many urban centers across the world high rates of crime and violence are undermining growth, threatening human welfare, and impeding social development. Crime impacts business and is a major obstacle for investment. The root causes of violence include rapid urbanization, persistent poverty and inequality, social exclusion, and post-conflict cultures.
