An invitation to discuss the cost of safety

Posted at 3:38 PM on August 13, 2007 by Bill Wareham

Catastrophes such as the I-35W bridge collapse and 9/11 raise the question of how much the government should invest in the safety and security of its population. While it may be possible to ensure that every bridge in the United States is sturdy and every airport secure, it may come at a cost too great for the government to bear.

This Thursday evening, MPR News will convene a forum discussion on the cost of safety. Please join us in the UBS Forum at MPR studios. For more information about the forum - and to reserve your seat - click here.
