On Thursday, October 30, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, NYU Law School will be hosting a book event for Ed Kleinbard's We Are Better Than This: How Government should Spend Our Money. At this session, Ed will speak for a while, then Linda Sugin and I will both offer, say, 10 minutes each of commentary, followed by open discussion in the room. A link for the event that includes a further registration link is available here.
The book is great - important, convincing, highly informative, entertaining, both erudite and sure-footed on a wide range of topics, and a major public service. I'll make more particular comments at the session, and then post something about them here.
