What are the hidden costs of segregation?

Justin Kaufmann and Marisa Novara

Justin Kaufmann and Marisa Novara

It’s our monthly “How To Improve” segment! The Metropolitan Planning Council’s Marisa Novara joins Justin to discuss the hidden costs of segregation. The Metropolitan Planning Council and Urban Institute are conducting a two-year study based on the hypothesis that by reducing segregation, Chicago and our region will experience faster economic growth and a more equitable quality of life. What does it cost us all—those living in concentrated poverty and those in concentrated wealth—to live so separately from each other by race and income? And, what policies can we adopt to reduce Chicago’s segregation?
