Wednesday, July 16, 2014

All this week on the Brian Lehrer Show we're checking in on the de Blasio administration's progress on a variety of key issues, six months into his first term. We'll talk to advocacy groups about how the mayor has lived up to his campaign promises on the environment, crime, housing, and more. Friday, we'll hear from Deputy Mayor Anthony Shorris.

New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer and Richard Florida, professor at New York University, director of the Martin Prosperity
Institute at the University of Toronto and senior editor at The Atlantic, say they have a blueprint to create jobs for an "inclusive and creative" New York. They discuss their proposals, their event at NYU this afternoon, and whether tech can really drive middle-class growth. Plus, Stringer assesses the de Blasio administration's jobs record thus far, as part of our week-long series.

Richard Florida on America's 'Great Reset'

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Even though many economists are proclaiming the "Great Recession" ending or over, the nearly 10 percent of Americans who are unemployed probably find it difficult to imagine exactly what a prosperous, post-recession America will look like. Richard Florida, author of "The Great Reset: How New Ways of Living and Working Drive Post-Crash Prosperity," says that's because the crash has fundamentally altered how we feel about spending and saving. He says we're all in the process of resetting the way we work and live.

We started the conversation by asking the question: Have you remade your life because of this recession?
