Paying Attention to What Matters
This afternoon I’ll be making a brief presentation at the 40th Anniversary celebration of the Public Management Program at Stanford Business School. One of my central themes is that to make a difference, we have to pay attention to what matters. In the context of voting and democracy, most of our modern media and information technology focuses us on exactly the wrong things — the game of politics and the drama of partisan conflicts.
If you’re interested in participating in a conversation around this critical problem and/or supporting our efforts to change the game, please email me at ernie AT smartvoter.org or sign up for updates on this blog.
