A friend of mine recently recommended listening to the Commonwealth Club of California’s podcast. The Commonwealth Club is the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum, bringing together its more than 18,000 members for over 400 annual events on topics ranging across politics, culture, society and the economy.
The most recent podcast was entitled America’s Budget Crisis and contained a panel of bi-partisan economists, comptrollers, and others to discuss the state of the U.S. budget crisis. I highly recommend listening (or watching below) this program. Although the topic might bring to mind a lot of “gloom and doom” talk, the program is actually full of hope, helpful ideas, and recommendation on how we can make a difference.
