Episode Details

Original tape date: January 6, 2014.

First aired: January 8, 2014.

First up, how will Mayor Bill deBlasio narrow the gap between the city's rich and poor? Which policies might work, which will backfire? Joining us, the editor-in-chief of City Limits, Jarrett Murphy. And Crain’s New York columnist Greg David, who directs the Business and Economics Reporting program at CUNY’s Graduate Schoool of Journalism.

Then, affordable housing -- which is very much on the new mayor’s agenda. We’ll see the modular apartments now being stacked up above the Barclays Center at Atlantic Yards. To show and tell us more, SHoP Architects Principal Partner, Jonathan Mallie.

In this week's Public Intellectual segment, where we look at new research with the power to change minds and public policy: the daughter effect: how baby girls can turn their parents toward the G.O.P. New York University sociology professor Dalton Conley shares his research with Brian.

And, for the the city's new police commissioner, we offer ten unorthodox ideas for fighting crime. Senior Justice Policy Center fellow at the Urban Institute gets us thinking.
