Joel Garreau

Joel Garreau is a journalist and writer. He works as a teacher at the School of Public Policy of the George Mason University and as editor of the Washington Post, where he coordinates a section known as "cultural revolution." His studies concentrate on the phenomenon of globalization and its social, cultural, and urban consequences, maintaining the hypothesis that in the 1990s the bases were laid for a genuine social revolution. He leads the so-called Edge City Group, which defends the creation on a world level of more "liveable and profitable" urban environments.
