RESEARCH & COMMENTARY
The Shared Prosperity Partnership aims to elevate new insight into inclusive economic growth and promising new models for cities through publications, thought capital, and research. By promoting inventive and actionable ideas, the Partnership aims to strengthen existing efforts and inform urban policy and practice.
In this paper, we review the three common principles that underlie strategies to ensure shared prosperity in cities and introduce the Share Prosperity Partnership, a joint initiative of the Kresge Foundation, the Brookings Institution, the Urban Institute, and Living Cities, that seeks to accelerate the locally-driven solutions to economic inequality that are emerging in urban communities across America. While the specific approach of each city is unique, all build on the fact that our nation only succeeds when our cities succeed; and our cities only succeed when all of their communities succeed.
