We continue our Project Milwaukee: Southern Connections series with a look at how the aerotropolis model of development is being implemented in Milwaukee. Dr. John Kasarda is the Director of the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise and Kenan Distinguished Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at the University of North Carolina. He also directs the Kenan Institute’s Center for Air Commerce. Considered to be the leading developer of the aerotropolis concept, he is also the author of the several books, including the new tome Aerotropolis: The Way We'll Live Next. He spoke with Stephanie Lecci.
