You can listen live Saturdays at 1p or 7p ET on Bloomberg’s BostoniHeartRadio or at 10a or 4p PT on Bloomberg’s San Francisco iHeartRadio.
The Bright Side of Gentrification
Lance Freeman, Professor in Columbia University’s Urban Planning program, separates fact from fiction in the gentrification debate and discusses the surprising response he found when researching two inner city New York City neighborhoods for his book, There Goes the ‘Hood.
Sweatshop Boon
Benjamin Powell, Director and Professor of Economics at Texas Tech University and author of Out of Poverty: Sweatshops in the Global Economy, defends so-called sweatshops as the least bad option for individuals trying to escape extreme poverty and a stepping stone for countries seeking to jump start economic development. Powell recommends conscientious shoppers unreservedly buy products from poor countries so that they, too, can follow the path of Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore.
