Talking Business


OPB/John Rosman

Rob Smith joins us for our regular business check-in. Here are some of the stories we’ll dig into:

  • Changes in local newspapers. The Pamplin Media Group is launching a new paper in Hillsboro. At the same time, the company that owns The Oregonian is cutting back publication days for two of its east coast papers.
  • Developers who are trying to save money on new apartment buildings going up in Portland by cutting back dramatically on creating space for parking.
  • Social impact bonds: a new type of investment that tries to solve social problems (like recidivism) while providing a return for investors.

Are you a newspaper reader? Do you live in one of the Portland neighborhoods affected by new developments without parking? What business stories have been on your mind?
