Water, Politics, Business - Des Moines Water Works

We've been doing the Business News Hour for a long time. Each weekday for nearly four years we've reported on the business news of the nation, region and the Greater Des Moines Metro. During that time we have watched the convergence of business and politics and that has changed the conversation. This interview is an example of that. Bill Stowe, the CEO of the Des Moines Water Works has been described as "The most hated man in Iowa" and as a "Moses standing up for the people against special interests". According to the Des Moines Water Works the Iowa Legislature, in a purely political move, is seeking to dismantle the Des Moines Water Works yet over 68% of the people served wish to preserve the business...and in the end it is a business. We talk about that, the drainage district lawsuit, polluted water, Flint, Michigan and more in this extended interview.

The Book - No Surrender by Jack Hatch

Even thought I've known him for years I start this interview with former Iowa State Senator Jack Hatch with the admission I didn't realize the depth of his life-long involvement in progressive causes. We move from that into a conversation about his new book, No Surrender - Building a Progressive Agenda for Iowa with the Five Securities. In it Sen. Hatch not only points out the major problems within the Democratic Party, he also lists ways in which his party can reclaim the populist agenda. Something, he says, his party has drifted from. Have a listen...
