We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
Our favorite economist writes today about the serious differences between the spending proposals of Congressman Ryan and those of President Obama. Like us he is cheered by what seems to be a return by the President to the sort of thinking that got him elected. There's still not a big enough cut in Pentagon spending, but it's a start. Welcome back, Barack!
