Joel Rogers on High Road Economic Development
Our guest today is Joel Rogers, Professor of Law, Political Science, and Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Director of COWS (Center on Wisconsin Strategy). Rogers is the author of numerous books, including Metro Futures: Economic Solutions for Cities and Their Suburbs (1999, with Daniel D. Luria and Joshua Cohen), The Forgotton Majority: Why the White Working Class Still Matters (2001, with Ruy A. Tuixiera; On Democracy (1983, with Joshua Cohen). Rogers also is a contributing editor at The Nation and Boston Review and writes widely for popular media on questions of economic policy. He has helped create numerous public interest organizations, including Center for State Innovation and the Apollo Alliance, and was honored with a MacArthur Foundation ?genius? fellowship.
Professor Rogers visited Buffalo recently to participate in the conference The High Road Runs Through the City: Advocating for Economic Justice at the Local Level, organized by UB Law Professors Sara Faherty, Sam Magavern, and Martha McCluskey, and hosted by UB?s Baldy Center on Law and Social Policy, Cornell University ILR School, and the Coalition for Economic Justice. Rogers, who developed the concept of ?high road? economic development spoke about changing economic policy on the panel, Making it Last: Building Progressive Movements into Local Institutions. He also spoke as part of a keynote address on Deep Economics, in response to author and environmentalist Bill McKibben (author of Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and a Durable Future). For more information on the conference, see http://highroad.wikispaces.com/.
Join us for a conversation with UB Law Professor Martha McCluskey and Joel Rogers discussing his ideas and leadership in developing economic policies that provide better jobs, better cities, and environmental sustainability.
