Health Care & Public Health: Fadhel Kaboub & Wendell Potter

Menu change: Medicare for All, under Nice Things We Can Have, is now Health Care & Public Health. Joining health care (personal/micro) to public health (public/macro) in policy conversations expands the space for creating sustainable solutions that improve individual well being and free resources for society wide improvement, including pandemic response. I’ll be watching for more on this perspective.

RP Book Club: The Deficit Myth

In an effort that is both ambitious and potentially very useful, the folks at Real Progressives (@RealProgressUS) have launched a Book Club webinar on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm pacific, 8:30pm eastern.

Virginia Cotts — Co-Editor in Chief and Media Producer at RP — @folly_oh; Ramona Massachi — Host — @RamonaMassachi; and John Siener of the RP media team have come up with a good format. Each session begins with Stephanie Kelton reading a portion of The Deficit Myth for Audible. RP provides the text on a shared screen. Part two of each session features a principal MMT contributor. Particpants – there were 145 people on Dec 29 – have a dedicated chat channel and a second one for posing questions. Participants can pose, read and up-vote questions in that channel. In order of popularity, the questions are read aloud, either by the organizers or the participant who posed the question.

For the Dec 29 launch, the guest presenter was Fadhel Kaboub (@FadhelKaboub) (@GISP_Tweets) Associate Professor of Economics at Denison University, President of the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity He was skillful, gracious, informative and engaging.

RP tells me the recording will soon be available. They are! HERE. They led off with
