While eating a late lunch yesterday, I turned on the Dylan Ratigan show on MSNBC. Luckily I caught his interview with Nick Hanauer, author (along with Eric Liu) of a new book entitled Gardens of Democracy. I embed the clip below because I want you to hear how he argues for considering that the economy is truly an ecosystem or rather what that means.
This makes a lot of sense to me. For the most part, the Green Party has not been very adept at clarifying just what economic policies we want to put in place. This election cycle, with the lack of jobs being high on every candidate's list of talking points, it will be imperative that we find our economic voice. This just might be part of the story.
