Development Matter With Ken Harwood

Each week Ken will review economic development, job creation, environmental trends, and social issues in the Wisconsin. He will try to discuss issues from a sound business perspective and he will encourage his guests to do the same. He will offer alternative solutions from experts, pundits, and politicians, and then examine the economic realities behind them.

Ken notes, "The idea is simple, if we can discuss problems and solutions without pointing fingers or calling each other names we may get Wisconsin back on track, because it has damn sure derailed over the years".

Ken brings decades of political experience and journalism to the table and will call on a long list of friends, colleagues, and associates to address ideas, solutions and funding on hundreds of issues facing Wisconsin today.

4Q2020 Four questions about our economic destiny...

Ken Notes: The goal of my show is to discuss solutions to development issues facing Wisconsin without blaming others or pointing fingers, but a clear understanding of how politics works helps us understand why implementing solutions can be so difficult. This podcast does a brilliant job of taking us behind the curtain of politics, it isn`t pretty. One more time listen to Derailed at Wisconsin Public Radio....
