Pittsburgh, Louisville and Austin all have something in common: They, and other small cities, are helping to drive an often-overlooked revitalization across America’s heartland. And they’re part of what’s fueling America’s nine-year-long economic expansion, which next year will become the longest period of sustained growth since the Civil War.

Our hosts, Candace Browning, Michael Hartnett and Chris Hyzy, explore what’s needed to keep U.S. cities booming: the creation of high-tech jobs, the proximity of universities and industry, and a bigger recovery in the housing market and consumer lending. And they look at how investment opportunities are shifting in light of these new economic realities.
