I want to say that I've just been appointed to the Council for World Affairs (Boulder) Science and Technology selection committee! Now I can help create questions for panels, and influence who comes to discuss them at the 2016 Council for World Affairs. It's exciting.
I though I would post this link to a new research paper brought out by the council. This 30 page document helps to focus critical questions about the world's economic order. I think you'll find it interesting.
