Pride in our hometown and neighborhood is something that many Hawaiʻi residents take seriously. But just how impactful are they in our lives? A study was recently published about the power of neighborhoods you grew up in affecting economic opportunities. Contributing editor Neal Milner joined us for our bi-weekly segment The Long View to talk about it.

This interview aired on The Conversation on Aug. 17, 2022. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1.
