This book club is for those of us who love a good read and meaty discussion on the latest and greatest theories and rhetoric of politics and the economy... (note, we're not all that radical, or ridiculous, but it's a catchy name!).

We're interested in consumer behaviors and the relationships of capitalism and democracy, with a side of sustainability and long-term thinking...

You can get a sense of the types of books we read from previous meetups, and we've got a discussion going on 'Future Books' on the Message Board; add your own suggestions so we can put together a great schedule of reading.

Meet up locations will be close in. As the group forms we can settle in on a place or two.

Whooo hooo...
Books !!!

    "Peter, I think you would definitely contribute to the collaboration. If we can get one more perhaps two more people, I think we could divide the year equally for each of us to act as organizer...."
