How does race and racism affect in your life? Anti-racist activist and writer Tim Wise is the author of six books, most notably his highly acclaimed memoir, "White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son." His latest book, "Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America" is out this month. Also in this episode, New Orleans youth discuss how racism affects their lives. All that and a few words from Flanders on security forces that stink.

From Austria to Chile, Lagos to London, people are demanding policies that democratize economies and keep public resources in public hands. In just the last decade, more than 2,400 cities in 58 countries have brought privatized resources back under public control. In this episode, Laura reports from Amsterdam at The Future is Public, a conference that brings together hundreds of organizers, scholars, and government officials who are working to democratize their municipal and national economies.
