Buddhist Economics: How to Stop Prioritizing Goods Over People and Consumption Over Creative Activity
16 yo kid has just changed the game
A 16 y.o. kid has created a plug-in for browsers that, when you hover over the name of a member of congress mentioned on any webpage, popups to give you a list of donations made to that congressperson from lobbyists, corporations, etc. Right now it has numbers for 2012 but he's working on getting it to 2014. Yeah, it's a drop in the bucket compared to all of pac money and other shenanigans but if we could just get this kind of transparency started it could have a huge impact on our politics, and one that would be good for all. Too cool.
Oh yeah. The kid's motto? "Some are red, some are blue, ALL are green"! I love this kid!
