Up To Date

Former U.S. Secretary Of Labor Robert Reich

Former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich has spent a lifetime thinking about all manner of economic questions — including one of the toughest issues facing the U.S. these days, which is the growing income disparity between rich and poor. His latest book, Saving Capitalism, asks the central question: Is the free market really free?

Robert Reich speaks tonight at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library. Rainy Day Books is the co-presenter of the event. All seats are gone but you a live stream is available at youtube.com/kclibrary. For information, visit kclibrary.org.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region.
