A former reporter for the Chicago Tribune who spent years abroad getting a first-hand look at global competition takes a tour of the midwest and what he finds isn't pretty. Richard Longworth grew up in the midwest, but cuts the region no slack when comparing it to other parts of the world. In his new book Caught in the Middle, Longworth says to survive the region must recruit low-wage immigrants, and accept that trade protection is a thing of the past. Listen Monday at 9:00 a.m. to The Sound of Ideas on 90.3.
