This week on The New American Economy, Dr. Patty DeMarco has Grant Ervin from Pittsburgh and Jamie Cooke from Glasgow, Scotland on the program to talk about how the two cities are sister cities working to revitalize themselves after being industrial cities for many year and now having to transition to a post-industrial society. A big idea covered in this episode is the transition to a different try of workforce that was previously known in these cities. In Pittsburgh this manifests and investment in the energy industry, and in Glasgow this is seen though the creation of a union for the self-employed and investments in some manufacturing industries.
