Several of us were in DC this past week on a CPA Congressional Education trip.  I was joined by David Frengel (Penn United Technologies), Stephani Scruggs (912 PAC), Dave Ferriman and Karl Rusnak (Economy in Crisis), Ken Mayo (CPA’s Florida co-chair and Tea Party liaison) and Charles Blum (CPA Gov’t Relations and IAS Group).  Ellen Croibier of CPA-central worked us hard, scheduling 46 Congressional meetings (!!) to educate staff and members on problems with Fast Track and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Here is a photo of our meeting with Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina.

    I was wondering if any of the Fair Trade people ever looked at “other” economic models or ideas that could possibly enhance the current model entrenchment. I have a friend who is proposing greater economic prosperity by using something called “Entrepreneurial MLU”. I believe it has to do with getting greater worker ownership of their work, profits and company daily activity through greater part ownership of that company. His name is Motty Perel and his book on Amazon called “Smiling For Profits” explains this further.

    There are a host of companies that involve employees in “ownership” at many levels. The problem even for very enlightened companies is more “environmental” than anything an ownership (company, jobs, responsibility, etc.) can deal with. When you’re in competition with state owned enterprises and governments, private companies lose. When the US allows itself to be “played” the deck is way too stacked…..
