The city is the supreme symbol of human endeavour and, according to the authors of Age of the City, the place where the key threats to human sustainability must be faced. Ian Goldin is a world-leading voice on globalisation and development. Tom Lee-Devlin is global business correspondent for the Economist. Here, they explain why cities are where the battles of inequality, social division, pandemics, and climate change will be fought. In conversation with Jude Barber.
