The New American Economy - Immigration Reform

Through a bitter election cycle and afterward it would seem that immigration reform, to some, means only kicking people out of the United States rather than finding ways to create a pathway to a secure future. Enter the business, faith and social community and what is called the New American Economy. Here John Stienman talks about how hosts of individuals, from various political back-grounds, are urging a positive system that will not only improve our business climate but is also the "right thing to do".

Democrats, Business, Voting the Economy and More with Martin O’Malley

We, at the Business News Hour, pride ourselves in offering "Non-Toxic Talk Radio".  In other words we don't do politics. But, from time to time, a national figure crosses our state and because politics and business has, over the past month, become so entwined we think it's fair to ask political questions that relate to business. We caught up with former presidential contender Gov. Martin O'Malley this past weekend and asked him why Democrats get a bad rap when it comes to business.  That and more right here...
