Thank you to everyone who came out last night. It was a great turnout given the other things we have going on, most notably the OP finance meeting. I was very pleased to see some new faces! The meeting was fairly productive as we managed to get through our agenda and share ideas for about an hour. Diamond from the 99% Declaration was in attendance as well. He provided some excellent information about their efforts and how we can get involved. The discussion as to whether or not this will become an official RS effort will be on the table this week in our online discussion group.
On a side note: Dan B. was feeling inspired on his train ride home. While he was spreading the word, he was approached by some bankers! They had some interesting arguments, and they gave Dan some books to read – Too Big to Fail and The Big Short. Dan noted to me later that we should consider creating a guide to talking about Corporate Personhood and the Glass-Steagall Act. Great idea… Any takers? At the very least, this could be a great topic for discussion for our next meeting.
