We’re launching a series of conversations on the Bloomberg legacy around the basic question “Did Bloomberg Make Us ______”
This week, “Did Bloomberg Make Us Richer?” How do we begin to assess the Bloomberg economic legacy when it comes to personal wealth, and economic prosperity? What do we make of the state of income inequality in New York today as compared to twelve years ago? How do issues such as zoning, education, housing play in? How does he compare to past mayors, and his contemporaries?
I’ll stop asking broad questions now, and let the panelists take over! We’ll see where the conversation goes online, then pick it up on the air this Thursday. I'll also ask some of the 2013 mayoral candidates this same question on-air this week.
