The Frog Economy – Reaction to Robert Reich

Columbus Futurist member Bob Letcher has published a new post in the LA Progressive entitled “The Frog Economy – A Reaction to Professor Reich’s Tortoise Economy.”

Here’s an excerpt:

With great respect and much trepidation, I wish to challenge Professor Reich’s“tortoise” analogy, because he focuses so tightly on the challenge his tortoise faces in trying to climb to higher ground from the depths of a recession-already-underway, thereby obscuring a more fundamental question: how did the tortoise get into such a bad spot in the first place? As I see it, the starting point we choose for our analysis influences the policy options that can “occur to us”, and so, constrain our analyses, our evaluation criteria, and ultimately the recommendations we make.

Worth taking a few minutes to read and comment!
