Listen: Our country currently faces a unique set of economic and environmental challenges. We're also lagging behind the rest of the developed world when it comes to modernizing our infrastructure. Where are we going to find solutions? What does the conversation look like now, and what needs to change? And how does this impact Wisconsin and Milwaukee?

This week, hear from the 4th Street Forums distinguished guests panelists, including Peter Beitzel (Vice President of Business Development at the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce), Jacky Grimshaw (Vice President of Policy Center for Neighborhood Technology), Karen Royster (Executive Director of Institute of Wisconsin’s Future, and Kenneth Yunker (Executive Director of the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission).


Catch this episode of 4th Street Forum on Friday at 10PM and Sunday morning at 9am on Milwaukee Public Television (Channel 10.1).

And the 4th Street Forum is back next week with "Our Slowly Sinking Middle Class." A sea of debt, disappearing jobs, stagnant incomes. Middle class people fight to stay afloat in this global economy. Have they been cast adrift by government and business?

More information on the 4th Street Forum is available at their website. You can also check out the embarrassment of riches that is their video archives .
