New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg gives his final major policy speech on Wednesday, two weeks before he steps down after three terms in office. Bloomberg, addressing the Economic Club of New York, will speak about "the rise of American cities, the strategies needed to continue urban progress and the threats cities face," according to an announcement sent out from his office. The mayor, who was elected as a Republican and later gave up his party affiliation, led the city in the aftermath of the attacks of September 11, 2001, and during the recession that hit six years later.
