About the Show

Many cities are banking their future on the promise of logistics - the industry devoted to moving stuff from the maker to the market. While the industry has grown more sophisticated with information and technology, success still depends on transportation. Rob Hoffman, the former director of business development for World Business Chicago and a specialist in trade, is with us to talk about the state of transportation and how it affects a major growth industry in the U.S. Prior to joining World Business Chicago, Rob led the Industrial Marketing and Sales practice at the Chicago Manufacturing Center.

We'll also talk to Sara Rogers about the in South Florida, a recent Harvard Innovations in Government Award winner. Sara is a lifetime educator having served as a math teacher, assistant principal and principal for thirty years.

And we hear from Reena Jana of BusinessWeek.
