Poverty, Civic Works, Katrina

The Works Progress Administration was a massive public works project created by FDR in 1935. Should a similar kind of initiative be launched to rebuild New Orleans? Scott Myers-Lipton discuss the Gulf Coast Civic Works Project; he also discusses his book "Social Solutions to Poverty: America’s Struggle to Build a Just Society." Salena Acox visited the Gulf Coast as part of the "Louisiana Winter."
