Nov/Dec 2009, Foreign Policy

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – If you've been in a foreign country and turned on the television, you may have been embarrassed by what you saw - American television programs that some might label as "junk." The development economist Charles Kenny says though that those "Desperate Housewives" and singing idols have a transformative power and it's a positive one. Thursday, Kenny joins Doug to talk about TV and the revolution it's creating around the world.

  • Charles Kenny's article Revolution in a Box appeared in the Nov/Dec issue of Foreign Policy.
