Why the Ports Matter

Hosted by

All this week on KCRW, we’re reporting on the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to explore one very large part of the greater LA economy. Cargoland looks behind the gates of America's busiest waterfront, and the ninth busiest port complex in the world, where 40 percent of goods that come into the United States cross. LA Observed editor Kevin Roderick joined KCRW's Steve Chiotakis to talk about the economic impact of the ports and why they are such a big deal to our region.
