My talk to the Roosevelt Institute Campus Network

December 12th, 2014 at 4:45 pm

It was my privilege last night to give the keynote presentation at the Roosevelt Institute Campus Network’s 10th anniversary party.

Why me? Because when they started out a decade ago, I recognized what a great idea they had and tried to help a bit. What they’ve accomplished since then is remarkable and gives me hope for the future.

Plus, they were having a rockin’ party with an open bar, yet not only did they stop and listen to 15 minutes of my gum flapping, but they quite madly applauded when I talked about the importance of interdependent utility functions. Them’s my kind of nerds.

Here’s my talk.

    I enjoyed reading your speech you gave at the Roosevelt Institute Campus Network. I agree with you that, “The impact of that much slack on workers’ wages, inequality, and the bargaining power of middle and low-wage workers has been profoundly negative.” My understanding is blue and white collar workers alike have been hit hardest because not only do they lack the power of production but also the power of programming. I especially thought your summation was heartfelt and I thank you.
