Lucid thoughts on the economy


Arianna Huffington and Tavis Smiley said some great stuff in the May 25th issue of Time magazine:

Arianna on poverty: “The World Food Program estimates that if you spend just over $2 billion, you can feed every schoolchild going hungry around the world. We actually need to look at the opportunity cost of what we are not doing when we are saving Citigroup.”

Tavis on unemployment: “A rising tide lifts all boats, but if you’re in a yacht and I’m in a dinghy, we still got a problem here. And that’s not counting the folks who are in the water but don’t have a yacht or a dinghy.”
