Building The New Economy

I am in DC at the Building The New Economy conference. There is a Listen Live button at that site, so you can attend as well. My computer clock says 5:40am as I type this so California readers are discovering this half way through the conference. :-0
Yesterday I attended a blogger roundtable with Rich Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO. I’ll write about this later.
