Urban Wealth Funds gaining traction

A series of opinion articles all over the US propose Urban Wealth Funds to improve governance of local government real estate and other assets, helping to stimulate housing and other infrastructure investments. One example is this article in the Columbia Daily Spectator on solving the New York housing crisis . Another example is this article by William Fisher on how Urban Wealth Funds could manage local Tech Gardens better.

Urban Wealth Funds were proposed by  Dag Detter and Stefan Fölster, who together wrote the‘The Public Wealth of Nations’ (2015) which was  listed as the book of the year by both The Economist and The Financial Times and the ‘Public Wealth of Cities’(2018).
