Announcing a new Meetup for Ridiculously Rad Readers of Politics and Economics!
My name's Curt, and I've stepped in for Jen to organize this meetup group - I think it's a great idea that needs to keep going!
What: RRRoPERs Re-Start with 'Common Wealth'
When: March 31, 2009 7:00 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: The book for the meeting is "Common Wealth" by Jeffrey Sachs (2008 - now out in paper). We'll spend some time discussing the book and Sachs's recommendations about the critical initiatives for lifting up the poorer areas of the world while trying to find a sustainable path forward. The book's a bit long, but you can get the gist of it in the first couple chapters, so don't be frightened away if you haven't read the whole thing.
I'd also like to spend some time at the meetup to re-start this group, since the original organizer stepped down. I think it would be great if we could decide on the next few books we'd like to cover, so bring your suggestions if you're interested in being an active member.

PS. I've set up a second meetup for early May as well, for the book "The Limits of Power" - so you have plenty of time to read that one!
