We face a $10 trillion debt for the past 8 years of war and unregulated financial markets abuse. Let's come together to discuss possible solutions for this financial pickle, so that the reforms we need throughout the socio-economic sphere can happen. Then we can give our feedback to the Obama administration through the change.gov website, and discuss other actions we can take. We will have the advice of a university economics professor.


Please rsvp for directions and so I know how many
will come. You can also sign up for it at Obama's change.gov website under events, for all who register with the website:http://www.change.gov.

I've included below some of the sources I've been
reading on the economy and solutions.

Here are links to the Institute for Policy
Studies' proposals for alternatives to the Wall Street
bailout
and for general economic recovery:

This link has an interview of Linda Bilmes on the article,
"The $10 Trillion Hangover," which she and Nobel
Prize-winner Joseph Stiglitz wrote for this months's
Harper's on the Bush Administration's legacy:

Also, here is a piece on tax cuts from Dave Johnson,
blogger and Huffington Post contributor:

Evidently, Obama plans to make tax cuts the centerpiece of> his economic stimulus plan. See

This should give us the opportunity to give input to the
new adminsitration on its policy toward corporations and the rest of us.

Happy New Year!
