Gar and Ted's Excellent Adventure

economics :: politics

Okay, and Duncan too ;-)

Well, today I had the immense good fortune to meet with Gar Alperovitz, author of America Beyond Capitalism and Ted Howard, Director of The Democracy Collaborative. We had a fantastic meeting this afternoon in Washington, D.C.

You know, there are times when you meet people and the
personalities, atmosphere, communication and relating go beyond all
expectations. This was one of those times. They are both exceptional
individuals with lofty goals coupled with a down-to-earth approach for
attaining these goals; two very welcoming and natural or "real" people
with a great sense of humor and deep interest in open, honest,
thoughtful discussion. It was an honor to share conversation with such
scholars and activists, but even more so, it was an honor be sharing
food and drink with two wonderful human beings.

These are the types of interaction that have been slowly and queitly transforming our society. I look forward to more :-)
