Original tape date: January 13, 1999.
Host, David R. Jones, President of the Community Service Society of New York, discusses progressive politics and policies in New York City with Harvey Robins, former New York City official, and Ruth Messinger, former Manhattan Borough President. Robins and Messinger explain how little of NYC's economic surplus is being used to treat the city's poverty and unemployment. They also discuss what could happen in NYC during a future economic recession. Jones advocates that NYC must have an activist city government that revitalizes a progressive agenda.
