Tuesday, November 15th: Local First

Salt Lake City, UT – Hundreds of cities across the nation are joining together to shore up their own local economies in the face of globalization, most manifest in Everytown, USA by the presence of so-called Big Box Stores. What is the value of a local economy? What benefit does "buying local" have for the individual and his or her community? Guests David Nimkin of Buy Local First Utah and Stacy Mitchell, author of "Hometown Advantage," join host Doug Fabrizio to discuss the local economy movement.
