In a TED Talk presentation entitled, "Who should live in cities?", Ms. OluTimehin Adegbeye asks profound questions about how leaders build more inclusive megacities. Her humorous and heartfelt story reveals leaders' desire to make megacities at the expense of the poor people that give cities life. In her words, "instead of getting rid of poverty, they focus on getting rid of the poor." She makes the case the megacities should exist for all the inhabitants, both rich and poor. There is a better way to make megacities more inclusive to the needs of all its citizens.
