I will make my NPR Radio Debut tomorrow morning. Wish me luck. Our general topic area will be President Obama's New Green Deal. Are recessions the right time to make fundamental changes to our economy's infrastructure? Have you noticed the full page ads in the New York Times taken out by IBM lobbying pretty convincingly for the need for a "Smart Energy Grid"? Can such large infrastructure projects be provided by the private sector? This seems unlikely. A new generation of private/public partnerships could help make this happen.
Returning to my radio appearance tomorrow; here are the details; NPR Radio on 11-25-2008 at 10am Eastern Time . Please listen, I sometimes wonder whether I am just talking to myself!
