Excerpt from the above archived post/ URL:
The first “Bernard L. Schwartz Economic Policy Symposium” will take place in Washington at the New America Foundation offices on Thursday, 26 March 2009. Attendance information is here.
Financier and former Loral CEO Bernard Schwartz has been trying to push the administration and Congress to realize that there are different kinds of deficits the nation has to struggle with — and the most important in his mind is leaving an “infrastruture deficit” to the next generation. He will be helping to open this important conference.
I will be moderating the meeting along with my colleague Sherle Schwenninger and New America Foundation President and New Yorker staff writer Steve Coll.

The purpose we have in organizing this meeting is to try and position some of the key issues that should be considered at the London G-20 meeting and to begin to emphasize that the fumbling on economic policy needs to stop. (my bolding)
It’s time to begin organizing a Team B economic policy effort — even if it is organized by a network of concerned civil society leaders.
MMM…a “Team B” ….”even if it is organized by a network of concerned civil society leaders.”
Remember Laura Tyson during the Clinton years? And what’s George Soros got to say??
