Frequent commenter UptheFlag posed a question in a previous thread:
“The situation, my friend, is no longer serious; it is dire. Where is the leader, the politician, who will stand up and say or write that we have to cut programs and raise taxes? Who is going to stand up for cutting complete programs from the Department of War…”
Who? I suggest not one person, but rather a team. A team of intelligent men and women whose sole assignment is to figure out how to get our country out of the economic mess in which we find ourselves.
The answer- The Thinkers. Specifically, The Thinkers 50. This organization compiled a definitive listing of the world’s top 50 business thinkers. We’ve trusted politicians and they fail us every time. Why not go directly to the experts in the business field?
Here is a list of the 2009 top 50. President Obama ought to invite all 50 to the White House for a 3-day summit on ways to address the failing U.S. economy. What could it hurt?
