Power Play (Episode #4004)

KQED Life: Sun, Apr 28, 2013 -- 12:00 PM

Guests: Tyson Slocum, director of Public Citizen Energy Program; Ken Malloy, Executive Director of CRISIS & energy markets. The deregulation of electric utilities became a hot-button issue in the late 90s, with many states allowing companies to operate in the open market. In theory, this move would foster an environment of competitive pricing and better customer service. The reality, however, has allowed for significant price increases, as well as negatively impacting some state's economy and consumer use. This Inside E Street takes a look at consumer advocates who claim residential energy prices have sky -rocketed, as well as the electric company representatives who support this deregulation. So just how broken is the electric utility industry, and what does it mean for you, the consumer?

KQED Life: Sun, Apr 14, 2013 -- 12:00 PM

Guests: Kerry Hannon, AARP Job Experts, Forbes Contributor; Kevin Cahill, Sloan Center on Aging and Work. It's never too late to embark on your second career. At midlife you may ask "what's next?"

Motivations range from financial to the desire to do something more personally fulfilling. But in practice, many people find it not as simple as it sounds. What are the strategies to make a smooth transition into the next chapter? Inside E Street's Lark McCarthy talks with Kerry Hannon, author of "What's Next: Follow Your Passion and Find Your Dream Job, " and Kevin Cahill, a research economist with the Sloan Center on Aging and Work at Boston College.
