Public Affairs airing this week

Benjamin Franklin and the American dream are often associated with the uninhibited pursuit of money. Nothing could be further from the truth, argues UC San Diego political scientist Alan Houston. To Franklin, the good life - a life of improvement - was spent pursuing knowledge, cultivating friendship, advancing freedom, and addressing human needs. Houston's presentation is the first of a seven-part lecture series exploring the meaning of the good life, sponsored by The Making of the Modern World program at UC San Diego.

Leading experts Saru Jayaraman, David Neumark and Ron Unz weigh in on the national conversation to raise the minimum wage, devoting special attention toward the California political landscape and impacts on food-related industries. Join us and learn how sometimes divisive social issues generate new, unexpected bipartisanship and consensus. Recorded on 04/12/2014.
