The Moral Underground: How Ordinary People Subvert an Unfair Economy

Host Lisa Loving speaks with Lisa Dodson, a public sociologist at Boston College whose research interests include poverty, public policy, and low-income work and family life. She also specializes in collaborative research methods, conducting inquiry that includes the thinking of people “under study.” She has developed an area of specialty -- Poverty, Families, and Social Policy – focusing on the spreading effects of economic stratification. Her new book The Moral Underground: How Ordinary People Subvert an Unfair Economy is based on eight years of research about hidden resistance to an economy that harms millions of working families.

Promises Made--That Will be Kept

Promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.

When I ran for the KBOO Board in 2000, and recently was voted unanimously to serve on the present KBOO Board, I made promises that I intended and still intend to keep. My platform then in 2000 was the same as the recent one in answering the questions put to me by the KBOO Board.

My motive in coming to KBOO was never programming in terms of my own program. I am a teacher and lecture all over the world and did/do not need a megaphone. I am heartened, however,  by the support that we never solicited, but nonetheless got, from listeners to Mitakuye Oyasin in Russia, Italy, Turkey, Denmark and other countries.
