Think about that: people have worked all their lives and now you tell them the terms just changed, and at precisely the part of their lives when they will find it hard to replace the lost income.</p><p> Tue, 27 Aug 2013 19:52:03 +0000 Stephen Gottlieb 72401 at http://wamc.org 7/31/13 - Panel http://wamc.org/post/73113-panel <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>Today's panelists are WAMC’s Alan Chartock and WAMC newsman Ray Graf and special guest - Professor Christine Chung, co-director of the joint Albany Law School / University at Albany Institute for Financial Market Regulation.

While redemption is thin on the ground in this ghost of a city, Detroit: An American Autopsy is no hopeless parable. LeDuff shares an unbelievable story of a hard town in a rough time filled with some of the strangest and strongest people our country has to offer. Detroit is a dark comedy of the absurdity of American life in the twenty-first century, a deeply human drama of colossal greed and endurance, ignorance and courage.</p><p> Mon, 04 Mar 2013 16:35:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 59042 at http://wamc.org "Detroit: An American Autopsy" by Charlie LeDuff Detroit City is the Place to Be: The Afterlife of an American Metropolis http://wamc.org/post/detroit-city-place-be-afterlife-american-metropolis <p>Once America's capitalist dream town, Detroit is one of our country's greatest urban failures, having fallen the longest and the farthest. But the city's worst crisis yet has managed to do the unthinkable: turn the end of days into something of a laboratory for the future. Urban planners, land speculators, and utopian environmentalists have been drawn to Detroit's decaying, nothing-left-to-lose frontier.</p> Thu, 15 Nov 2012 15:10:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 52063 at http://wamc.org Detroit City is the Place to Be: The Afterlife of an American Metropolis
