The show, which airs at 1 p.m. PST, will examine the port’s success and how it can be adapted on a larger scale, the producers say, adding Ratigan “will also discuss emerging new evidence and economic trends that suggest that the United States is losing the global trade war and our businesses and government are facing unfair trade policies and practices.”
It’s part of the show’s “Steel on Wheels” tour, hitting the road for three days a month in December, January, February and March to check in with ordinary Americans and chart a course out of our economic doldrums. Past stops have included Seneca Falls, NY; Philadelphia; St. Louis; Rochester, Minn.; Omaha, Neb.; and Boulder, Colo. The producers say Ratigan also will host an open town hall for the public to continue the conversation of how can we rebuild America; details have not yet been announced.
“We’re looking at ways to fix our broken system, our broken democracy, and celebrate the things that do work in our country,” Ratigan said in a news release.
