Focusing on future development of Cook County, Stroger's lecture will expound on initiatives implemented during his tenure that relied less on real estate taxes and more on cost-cutting measures to balance the county's budget.

The Future of Chicago is an annual lecture program that promotes public debate on Chicago issues. It is organized by Dick Simpson, UIC professor of political science and former Chicago alderman, and Doug Gills, assistant professor in the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs. UIC has hosted the program since 1976.
