Harvard Gazette: Academic turns city into a social experiment PDF Print E-mail

I enjoyed this piece about an innovative mayor of a troubled city.

Harvard Gazette: Academic turns city into a social experiment: "Mockus, who had no political experience, ran for mayor of Bogotá; he was successful mainly because people in Colombia's capital city saw him as an honest guy. With an educator's inventiveness, Mockus turned Bogotá into a social experiment just as the city was choked with violence, lawless traffic, corruption, and gangs of street children who mugged and stole. It was a city perceived by some to be on the verge of chaos."
