Now that the Holidays are behind us, and we begin to reflect, a particularly interesting event took place one evening.  At this specific dinner, we found ourselves in a rather diversified group including several artists, a foreign born American, a union member, a health care provider, and two young professionals who work in a think tank in Washington, DC.

Along with the small talk and catching up on personal lives, the discussion eventually turned to the state of the world and specifically the state of the US, its economy, pending financial and tax crisis, and all such things that are traditionally off limits in polite company – yes, we’ve been watching too much Downton Abbey!!

But even in such a diverse group there was consensus around a series of questions – Why isn’t anyone doing something to fix this?  Where are the good ideas?  And what began as the standard, somewhat cliché filled back and forth jousting of what we’ve all heard time and time again, ended up being a discussion of real substance, thanks to the youngest members of our group.

From them, came a clear assessment and understanding of where we are, what can be done to begin resolving some of our most urgent economic challenges, and how those changes impact individuals and the business community.

We thought that more people need to hear what some of the Millennial Generation has to say about solving our current problems – and that they have an optimistic perspective of our county’s future.  Ever wonder what actually happens in a think tank? Who’s behind the real solutions, who’s studied them, what’s being discussed and proposed in our nation’s capital.  As soon as “tax policy” is mentioned, we tend to roll our eyes just before they have a chance to glaze over – why does it have to be so complicated, boring, and theoretical?  We’re here to tell you, it doesn’t have to be.  We’ve found someone who speaks clearly and eloquently and in a way that relates to our daily lives.

Join us on Wednesday January 16, 2013 as we spend some quality time with Matt Jensen, Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington DC.  Matt has been seen on TV, last fall co-authored a paper that was mentioned in the Vice-Presidential debates, and has appeared on several radio stations.

This promises to be an enlightening and fun conversation.
