A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

August 26: Homelessness

Tomorrow we’ll discuss homelessness, particularly as publicized by recent developments in cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and, closer to home, Portland, ME.

I won’t have time to pull links to articles, but you can find them with the assistance of virtual assistant “Google.”

  • Why are these cities facing this crisis?
  • Why isn’t homelessness as much of a problem elsewhere?
  • What should be done about it?

I suspect we’ll find this is caused by many factors, so “solutions” are likely to take many forms as well.

See you tomorrow.
