January 27, 2013: Saving Local Dairy/Jim Yong Kim at the World Bank

Small dairy farms in New Hampshire and Vermont are struggling, and have been for a while. Vermont author Kirk Kardashian tackles this issue in his book Milk Money: Cash, Cows, and the Death of the American Dairy Farm. He tells us why local farmers are struggling and what we can do about it. We also ask him — why do small dairy farms tug at our heartstrings, while big farms don’t?

And just one year ago, Jim Yong Kim was President of Dartmouth College. Now he’s President of the World Bank. We ask Tom Blinkhorn, who worked at the World Bank for 30 years, how Kim is doing so far. Plus, he tells us some stories of World Bank presidents past.
