The Breakdown

Explaining Southern California's economy

DeBord Report on 'America Now with Andy Dean,' March 23 edition

I was overwhelmed by a conference at USC earlier this week and so I'm posting my weekly Economy Report segment from "American Now with Andy Dean" literally an hour before this week's segment.

Andy and I got into why the Apple 4G iPad is crushing consumers with its sky-high data usage rates, as well as why a town in Brazil would be even remotely interested in building tracking technology into student uniforms to combant the Brazilian scourge of truancy (I get my Libertarian on — a rare event — for this topic). 

But don't miss the exchange about Ron Paul and "Black Swan" author Nassim Taleb. Andy threw me for one, here. I figured he'd more of a Paul fan. But he, too, has issues with the GOP presidental candidate.

You can listen live to this week's segment here. We're on at 4 p.m. Pacific Time.
