ESI Principal and Co-Chair of the firm’s Board of Directors Dr. Richard Voith articulates how cities, towns, and rural areas should brace for lasting changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Voith also provides examples of how agglomeration of economies may lead to a significant rise in urbanized economies and may play a quintessential role in increasing income and economic well-being.
