Obama doesn’t have a jobs program. California doesn’t have a jobs program. But the city of L.A. DOES have a jobs program – the only one in the country.
HAROLD MEYERSON will explain – he’s an op-ed columnist for the L.A. Times and the Washington Post.
Plus: “METHLAND”: small town America has been crushed by union busting and agribusiness – and now an incredibly cheap, long-lasting, and highly effective drug has taken hold: NICK REDING tells the story of one town’s struggle with crystal meth. His award-winning book Methland is out now in paperback.
Also: Obama abandoned his environmental and energy programs. But cities have taken the initiative towards green energy and green jobs — and L.A. is in the lead, on some fronts at least.
JOAN FITZGERALD will explain. She’s Director of the Law, Policy and Society Program at Northeastern University, and her new book is Emerald Cities: Urban Sustainability and Economic Development.
