In a recent New York Times Op-Ed column, Seth D. Kaplan, a professorial lecturer in the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at John Hopkins University, and the author of "Betrayed: Poltics, Power and Prosperity," posits that Nigeria is "arguably the worst run of the world's seven most populated countries." But interestingly, Kaplan asserts, Lagos -- Nigeria's largest city, seems to have turned a corner.
Nigeria, of all places, Kaplan writes, may be pointing the way to a strategy by which fragile states might begin to succeed. In other words, using Lagos as his primary example, Kaplan suggests cities can help save countries.
