If Joe Biden wants to fix the housing crisis, he should start in New York’s suburbs

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The suburbs have failed to build their fair share of housing in the U.S. But with enough pressure from the top, that may change. President-elect Joe Biden has a plan for fixing the housing crisis , squarely targeting the shortages, costs, and discrimination that have made it difficult for many people to find a place to live. If he’s looking for a good place to begin this work once in office, he should look no further than the suburbs of the country’s most populous city. According to a new report , overly restrictive land use regulations in New York City’s suburbs have made housing there more expensive, limited, and segregated than almost anywhere else in the country.

Breaking down President Biden’s data-driven social media strategy

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Just days before the 2020 Presidential election, we reported that Joe Biden was outperforming Donald Trump on social media by certain key metrics. Despite the penetrating volume of Trump’s Twitter feed, Biden was earning more interactions per tweet, and far more interactions per user. Not only was Biden winning on Twitter, but his campaign was making an impact on YouTube and even on Twitch. And, of course, he won the election. But this wasn’t a social media campaign based on flair and instinct: it was tightly driven by social analytics. No-one can better explain how that worked in practice than Sarah Galvez, Director of Social Media and Audience Development at Biden for President. Sarah J. Galvez “I started out like many millennials as a consumer of the internet and social media,” Galvez told us. “I think I started my Twitter account in a computer lab while I was in high …

CEOs: If you really believe in stakeholder capitalism, now is your chance to make it real

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The business community has spent the Trump administration talking about creating a more just system for companies, employees, and the world. Now that the White House is listening, will they use their power to make it happen—or was it all talk? Many corporate executives are looking forward to the prospect of divided government in Washington, with President-elect Joe Biden in the White House but Republicans potentially holding onto the Senate, because they hope it will limit the chances of what they see as progressive overreach. But CEOs who have made commitments on issues such as climate change and racial justice should reject the outdated mantra that all regulation is bad for business and use their influence to push for a “stakeholder capitalism agenda,” both with Republicans on Capitol Hill and the Biden administration.

It’s time to talk about how Joe Biden defeated a dominant model of leadership

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Psychiatrist and professor Gianpiero Petriglieri argues that maybe, just maybe, Joe Biden will help us break up with the belief that great leaders are the cure for every ill. If you are interested in leadership, there is no grander spectacle than the U.S. Presidential election. It is not just a race for one of the most powerful leadership positions in the world. It’s a preview of what we might come to regard as a global leadership standard. Seen that way, the election is the equivalent of the Fashion Weeks in Paris, New York City, and Milan. The models display trends that we will see around town (or on Zoom) in the months ahead. Read Full Story

American suburbs are about to look more like European cities

{ object.primary_image.title }}

COVID-19 may accelerate a pattern that turns dull, transit-oriented developments into neighborhoods that resemble bustling cities. But there are risks. Over the past few decades, transit-oriented developments have risen in inner-ring suburbs across North America, adding homes and shops near the transit lines that shuttle workers in and out of core cities. It’s an old style of development, one more familiar in dense, transit-rich European countries, but one that caught a renewed interest in the 1990s. In places like Pasadena, California , and Aurora, Illinois , TOD projects leveraged transit access to create a more multifaceted sense of urbanity in places where it might not have emerged on its own.

They both work for Amazon. Their experience of the pandemic couldn’t be more different

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Conversations with two Amazon employees—one who works in marketing, and one who works as a Prime shopper—reveal the discrepancies in how different workers at the tech giant have weathered the pandemic. After living in New York City for more than a decade, Rob*, 35, didn’t think he’d be headed back to the suburbs. “I never thought that I would be moving home with my mom with no idea on what was next,” he says. But this unexpected reality hit at the end of summer, months into the pandemic, during which he lost his full-time job and started logging overtime hours at Whole Foods as an Amazon Prime Now Shopper.
