Difficult Not to Notice

Usually, the Clinton Global Institute meeting is dominated by Captains of Industry. Jim Rogers, who led Cinergy ("I make 1% of the pollution in the world") and later Duke Energy has been prominent in the past, as have a lot of other people who would prefer I didn't use their names.

Don't get me wrong: there are NGO and Charitable organizations as well. Sooner or later, "Fran Drescher from Cancer, Shmancer" will speak from the audience. Not to mention leaders from Foundations the world over.

But this year has been different.Even if you ignore the Plenary, the speakers who are championing innovation and investment are from the Government (Thomas Hicks, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy is leading major investments in alternative energy projects), and Randi Weingarten, head of the American Federation of Teachers which, along with the AFL-CIO, have started investing in rebuilding American infrastructure.

Maybe there is no industry left in the USA. Or, at least, the Captains of Industry have Gone Scrooge, counting their monies instead of using them.
