Smart City is a weekly, hour-long public radio talk show that takes an in-depth look at urban life, the people, places, ideas and trends shaping cities. Host Carol Coletta talks with national and international public policy experts, elected officials, economists, business leaders, artists, developers, planners and others for a penetrating discussion of urban issues.

This weekend...
  • The population of many cities in Europe, the U.S. and Australia are in decline. There are too few births to replace those who die and, for a variety of reasons, they are not attracting immigrants. In some cities, the economic foundations have crumbled due to major industrial dislocations.
  • They are called shrinking cities and joining this week are three experts to discuss what's happening and why. Thorsten Wiechmann has studied decline in Dresden, Germany, Cristina Martinez-Fernandez's research is focused on shrinking cities in Australia, and Emmanuele Sabot compares cities in the United Kingdom and France.
