Tonight's City of Chicago edition of Public Affairs features Ted Dabrowski, President of Wirepoints debating w/show host Jeff Berkowitz (1) whether the Fed's and State Government policy to create a catastrophic economic meltdown was (and is) good public policy and (2) whether IL and Chicago will be hurt even more than other states & cities by the meltdown.
The show airs tonight at 8:30 pm and midnight on Cable Ch. 21 (CAN TV).
The show also airs tomorrow night in 25 Chicago Metro North and Northwest suburbs at 8:30 pm:
-on Cable Ch. 19 in Buffalo Grove, Elk Grove Village, Hoffman Estates, parts of Inverness, Lincolnwood, Morton Grove, Niles, Northfield, Palatine, Rolling Meadows and Wilmette and

Dabrowski is well credentialed for tonight's show topics: Wharton MBA, two decades in the private sector and a decade in Public Policy.
The show was taped 4 days ago, and in large part revolves around the question: Will it be time in a week or less for the U. S. to reverse policy, i.e., stop the Federal engineered shut-down of the U. S. Economy, the very action President Trump said a few hours ago--Monday night at 6 pm (CST)-- he was contemplating taking within a week.
As the President said, the meltdown cure may be worse than the disease. All of life is a matter of making trade-offs, balancing benefits and costs, and that is what President Trump is doing-- and that is what Berkowitz and Dabrowski debate and discuss in tonight's show.
Ted Dabrowski: At what point is the human and economic toll of shutting down America, right? That's what it is. How does that compare to the potential human toll of the virus itself. And, that's the benefit- cost analysis that needs to be debated [by Congress, the President and the American people].
Ted Dabrowski: It's here: It's not an IL or Chicago specific crisis, it's a global crisis, but now we are wrapped in it. And, everything that we were worried about, that we talked about- those of us who want to see reforms-- it's coming true, it's come true...the crisis, the recession... and what it spells is massive trouble for Illinois-- relative to other states. And Chicago, relative to other cities.
