watched mike moore’s capitalism: a love story last night. this speech from FDR stuck with me. in fact, i cried as i was watching it. what if FDR had been able to enact these propositions? would sarah palin exist? would g-dub? would we be billions of dollars in debt and our entire economy and social structure bowing to big business and goldman-sachs?
this was a big deal on twitter a couple weeks back and i never had time to check it out. you can watch the full film (it’s 35 minutes) on hulu, and i recommend it. it’s a great look at the emerging economy of new startups that are coming out of people who’ve been laid off and used that as an excuse to do the thing they love and make a business out of it (or, in a few cases, just do the thing they love and figure everything else out as they go along).
