Talking about the Economy

Yesterday I had the privilege and pleasure of talking about the local economy on Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane.  It was the fourth installment of Ballot Talks: (Unsolicited) Advice for the Next Mayor, and the other guests were Roz McPherson of the Urban League of Philadelphia, Josh Sevin from the Economy League of Philadelphia and Jennie Sparandara of the Job Opportunity Investment Network (JOIN). 

Live radio is always a little nerve-wracking, especially on as prominent a platform as NPR. But the topic was engaging, the other speakers were stimulating, and Marty does a great job of keeping the conversation going.  Hopefully we gave some good advice to whoever will be our next mayor as to how to make Philadelphia vibrant, grow jobs, and deal with rising inequality.  Here's a link to the program, where you can listen to the podcast, if you're interested.
