Dave Swenson, associate scientist, talked to:
- David Biello, editor, (and crew from Detroit Public Television) from Scientific American, about the biofuels economy and its importance to the state and the role it plays in caucus politics. Portions of this will also be broadcast on PBS’s Newshour.
- Giles Paris, LeMonde Bureau Chief in DC, about the economic impact of the Iowa caucuses and whether the aura of campaign coverage was more valuable than the actual campaign spending.
- Emma Gross, NBC Nightly News, for an upcoming segment about the economic impact of the Iowa caucuses based on Swenson's 2008 study.
