Announcing a new Meetup for Deep Thinkers!

What: Zero-Sum-Game or Win-Win?

When: Saturday, April 17,[masked]:30 AM

Where:
Dolores Restaurant
11407 Santa Monica Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90025
[masked]

It's been a while since our last gathering, so your pent-up Deep Thoughts should be ready and eager to join our discussion next weekend. Fellow Deep Thinker Norma Desofi suggested a topic for our group and enough people gave it a thumbs-up that I asked Norma to lead the charge. We decided on a new venue - Dolores Restaurant & Bakery in West LA - and a time that fits both breakfast and lunch (11:30 AM).

We'll discuss the pros and cons of competition versus cooperation. When is one better suited than the other? Certainly in sports, competition is the name of the game. But others are not so clear-cut. Take the recent healthcare debate, for example. Did we end with a better result having the two parties essentially competing with one another? Or would the outcome have been better had everyone cooperated? And what about the corporate world? Or international affairs? Would we have reached the moon faster if we were cooperating with the Soviet Union instead of competing with it? Do the hurt feelings and deep rifts that can form over competing hurt the process beyond repair?

The examples are plentiful, so come prepared to discuss any of them, or just contribute to dialogue. It should be fun and fascinating. Remember, the more, the merrier!
