Please click the link below to hear this fascinating WNYC series.   It’s easy to listen to each episode at your leisure.    And it’s free.  This is riveting and will really blow you away.   We’ve been debating fantasy.   This series offers some very surprising realities, the awareness of which could open up the possibility of new solutions.    In order to get to those solutions, we have to GET REAL!!

(I recommend making PART 2 “Who Deserves to be Poor” the first one you listen to.   It will astound you).
