One Response to Progress and Poverty: Confronting Economic Inequity in America

  1. I commend this discussion to your attention. The two presentations are individually quite good, and the interaction of the two is also very useful. Dan Cassino points out how differently people who assume a zero-sum society operate with respect to others who recognize possibilities for economic growth. You might look for his articles in the Harvard Business Review and a WaPo article. The 2016 election results made a lot more sense to me after Dan’s analysis.

    And Polly’s presentation shows us how we might achieve a society and economy that works for all of us.
