Suburban Poverty In a lot of cities, including Sacramento, San Francisco and Stockton, the number of people living in poverty is higher in the suburbsthan the inner cities. There are a lot of complicated reasons for that, not just that some of the poorer inner-city people have moved outward. Alan Berube is a senior fellow & deputy director at the Brookings Institution and he' co-authored a new book called "Confronting Suburban Poverty in America."
In the original interview, guest host Rick Kushman mistakenly identified the oganization sponsoring the event. Alan Berube spoke to the Sierra Health Foundation.

News Network As Sacramento prepares to subsidize a new sports and entertainment complex at one end of the city’s famous downtown K Street, another heavily subsidized public work sits in question at the other end. A new report from watchdog group Eye on Sacramento found that the Sacramento Convention Center relies heavily on hotel taxes and has lost more than $200 million since 1999. But city officials contend the convention center is an economic driver. We'll talk about it with Raheem Hosseini of the Sacramento News & Review, who has recently written an article on the convention center’s fiscal standing. We’re also joined by Sacramento Press Editor Jared Goyette, who is the sole paid employee at his publication after recent downsizing. Goyette will discuss Sacramento Press’ struggle with unpaid citizen journalism.
