    Forum From the Archives: The Ladder of Success Elusive in Some Parts of the U.S. Geography plays a key role in income mobility, according to a new study which examined millions of earnings records. It's much easier for a child to rise out of poverty in cities like Boston or Seattle than in Atlanta or Columbus. We'll discuss the findings, and what role tax policies play in improving income mobility.
  • 9:30 am
    Forum From the Archives: The BART Strike and the State of Organized Labor As the BART strike entered its third day, we discuss strikes and the tactics of organized labor. Union participation is dwindling and strikes have become increasingly uncommon in recent years, as workers fear putting their jobs in jeopardy during a bad economy. As the economy begins to improve, will workers head to the picket line to protest conditions they may have tolerated in leaner times? And are labor actions that brought change in the 1930s still effective now?
  • 10:00 am
    Forum From the Archives: The Many Faces of Anna Deavere Smith Anna Deavere Smith is a playwright and actress whose transformational one-woman shows have been celebrated for their unique blend of art and journalism.

He returns with a new novel, "And the Mountains Echoed." Spanning over 50 years, the book portrays Afghanistan through the lens of a family coping with separation and tragedy. Hosseini joins us to discuss the book, as well as the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan.

Formerly with the band The Drive-by Truckers, he now has a new solo album, "Southeastern," with songs he wrote since he entered rehab and quit drinking. Critic Ken Tucker says the album "combines rock, folk and country music in a manner that permits Isbell to be as literary as he aspires to be, while also keeping him rooted in pop-music."

    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) Left-Leaning Latin America: Understanding U.S. Policy in the Region In 2004, the Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas was established under the leadership of late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Several countries from Latin America and the Caribbean signed on, including Cuba, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Nicaragua. This seemed to have ushered in the era of a left-leaning Latin America that is a greater challenge for U.S. policy in the region. How have these leftist governments in Latin America fared, and how has U.S. policy toward the region adapted? Speakers include: Michael Shifter, president of the Inter-American Dialogue; and Julia Sweig, director of Latin America Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations.
