We get the latest from NPR senior European correspondent Sylvia Poggioli after a highway bridge collapsed in Genoa, Italy, during a storm. Also, we continue our trip to Hudson Yards, the largest private real estate development in U.S. history, and take a look at how it compares to another real estate development that used to be just a few miles to the south. And the Trump administration has been using economic sanctions and tariffs to get other countries to bend to the will of the United States. One economist with the Council on Foreign Relations discusses the effectiveness and risks of that strategy. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Aug. 14, 2018 full broadcast.
