Mtn. Talk Monday: 2017 KCEP Policy Conference with Dr. Kathryn J. Edin & Jason Bailey

Host Kelli Haywood and WMMT’s Mimi Pickering share two engaging speakers from the 2017 Kentucky Center for Economic Policy Conference – Dr. Kathryn J. Edin from Johns Hopkins University and KCEP Executive Director Jason Bailey. Dr. Edin discusses her book $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America, describing the situations and survival of the nation’s poor. 40% of America’s $2 a day poor live in Central Appalachia. Then, Jason Bailey gives his “Where We Stand” address, reflecting on Kentucky’s economic condition and providing information on current and future state economic policy.
