Joel Kotkin joins Ben Domenech on The Federalist Radio Hour to discuss how cities will be transformed after the coronavirus pandemic ends. Kotkin is the Presidential Fellow in Urban Futures at Chapman University in Orange, California and executive director of the Houston-based Urban Reform Institute.
Kotkin argues that people, especially those who live in high density areas, are going to have adjust their lifestyles post-pandemic.
“People are going to have to start rethinking how they live. Now, that doesn’t mean cities are going away, because there’s always going to be a market for it,” Kotkin said. “But, there’s clearly a relationship between transit ridership and density and this pandemic.”
