4. thanks, I just watched his latest

On a side note, I notice you sport the English D as your icon so I assume you might have some connection or even residency? I wonder if you cringe like I do when Rick describes The D as a 'bombed-out, empty city'? I totally get the point he's making and I don't disagree with that point, but shit man this city ain't empty, there's a ton of great stuff going on and lots of great people and great places...oh well, it's a bit of a thing with me. I've been all over the world, visited many cities in the USA, and the only one that I genuinely liked better than The D was NYC. But I'm off topic here, don't want to distract from Dr. Wolff's message.

Anyway, thanks. And hey right back atcha.

5. yup, I love Wolff's analysis but.......

..... his Detroit descriptions are clearly those of someone who doesn't live here and watches too much TV. I'm actually planning on writing him about that.

6. kool.

Gonna have to do a check-in thread for Detroit DUers sometime. I think we're well-represented here. Keep on keepin' on, cousin. How much fun would it be to have a get together for everybody sometime? What a gas. Somewhere in Midtown perhaps. I can dream.

8. didn't you get the memo? We have to accept capitalism and its side effects. It's INCLUSIVE!

http://rdwolff.com/content/economic-update-economic-side-effects

He talks about the "Conference on Inclusive Capitalism: Building Value, Renewing Trust"

http://www.inclusivecapitalism.org/
The four keynote speakers:
The Prince of Wales
Mark Carney
Bill Clinton
Christine Lagarde

They have to convince us that capitalism is still the best system -- we just have to live with it and its side effects.
