"As a result of the recession, some Central Valley communities are facing
an acute economic crisis. From Modesto to Stockton, the concerns go far
beyond foreclosures and unemployment. What are the origins of this
crisis and how do they relate to the Bay Area? This forum will look at
the recession through the lens of the megaregion, a framework that
relates causes and impacts across Northern California. With geographers
and planners Alex Schafran and Hugo Lefebvre."
