From Fork, South Carolina, to Holmes Mill, Kentucky, Americans are waiting to see the fate of their local post office. Last month the cash-strapped USPS announced they'll close as many as 2,000 facilities around the country.

Professor Richard Geddes shares his ideas for how the post office can move forward. He's associate professor in the Department of Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University, he also served on the Council of Economic Advisors under George W. Bush, and he's author of "Saving the Mail: How to Solve the Problems of the U.S. Postal Service."
