Patchwork Nation: Affluent "Monied 'Burbs" feeling financial pains too

Monday, October 06, 2008

In our ongoing look at the economy, we turn to Dante Chinni of The Christian Science Monitor's Patchwork Nation project, which uses demographic information to look at America beyond state lines. No more red state or blue state. Chinni tells The Takeaway about the affluent way of life at risk in the "Monied 'Burbs."
Guest: Dante Chinni, director of The Christian Science Monitor's Patchwork Nation Project. He visits and writes about the 11 categories of American community that he's assigned based on social and economic data.
