About the Show

Low wage workers are often just one crisis away from extreme poverty. At America's Family, Steve Bigari recruits employers to take a lead role in addressing the problems that make their workers vulnerable. He's working to break the cycle of persistent poverty by helping workers achieve personal stability and to develop the skills they need to get a foothold on the ladder to the middle class. Steve is our guest this week on Smart City.

We also talk to Lance Berelowitz, author of Dream City: Vancouver and the Global Imagination. We'll find out from Lance why Vancouver seems to be every urban planner's favorite North American city. Lance is an award-winning writer and commentator on urban planning whose education is in architecture and design.

Traveling the road to the Dream City, this week on Smart City.
