EHG on WGBH “Innovation Hub”

The other day I was included in a panel discussion on WGBH’s “Innovation Hub,” a weekly radio show about examining new ideas and potential solutions to today’s many challenges.”  The theme was “A Better City, One Street At A Time,” and the session included me, along with host Kara Miller, as well as co-panelists Cara Seiderman from the City of Cambridge and Aaron Naparstek, founder and former editor-in-chief of Streetsblog.

If you follow the link, you can listen to the entire show online.  Be sure to listen to the end, where I get in a good plug for the importance of keeping cities affordable and well as “livable.”

Supplemental Poverty Measure: some movement

Update: a few weeks ago I posted this article calling attention to yet more delays in the unrolling of the long-awaited Supplemental Poverty Measure from the Census Bureau.   As it turns out, they have recently announced that this new index is in fact ready for prime time (see, for example, this press release).

More analysis and thoughts later after I am able to take a look, but I wanted to file something quick just to acknowledge the effort to get something out there.
