Central Standard

Buying Local?

If you don't think regional commerce has become en vogue, just type "buy local day" into your Google machine and see how many results come up.

On Thursday's Central Standard we explore the ideas behind the buy local movement, and weigh the pros and cons of the trend.

Joining us will be Judith Ancel, Director of the Institute for Labor Studies at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and Kendra Frink, manager at Ten Thousand Villages - one of the largest fair trade organizations in the world.
