TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

December 21, 2017 at 5:30 am

Congress passed the most sweeping re-write of the tax code in decades, with a presidential signature expected in days. But what will it really do for us and our states? Greg David, director of the business and economics reporting program at CUNY Graduate School of Journalism joins us to break down the tax code reform. As a part of our ongoing series “Peril & Promise,” we explore what sustainable farming is, and why its symbolic relationship with us and the earth, is vital to our future. Monty Python funnyman Eric Idle is here with a roadmap to explore the history of our universe… and to provide a few laughs too.

Aired on December 20, 2017.
