I'm leaving you with this very short clip of Elizabeth Warren, an American attorney who provided oversight to the development of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. In the wake of the 2008-2011 financial crisis, she became the chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel created to oversee the U.S. banking bailout.
She's currently running for US Senator from my home state of Massachusetts.
Here's part of what she says,
“There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.”Paul Krugman also has a top rate editorial in today's NY Times entitled, "The Social Contract". Do read it, if you haven't already.
More importantly, please listen to this two minute clip from Elizabeth Warren. This is the narrative that needs to get out there. This is the understanding of the interdependence in which we participate as citizens of this country which needs to be underscored.
One of the things Margaret Gunther teaches is to listen for "the holy" in the common, everyday language of our lives and in the words someone says to you.
I'll be doing that this weekend. I hope you'll take a few moments to listen to Elizabeth Warren.
