Introduction to this blog on Poverty and Inequality

I have finally succumbed to creating my own blog.  The blogosphere is a forest full of inaudible fallen trees, so I do this with some trepidation. However, I have been encouraged in this endeavor by several people over recent months who have expressed deep appreciation for my practice of emailing out links to articles and reports on the Web that they may find of interest.  Those of you who know me well (and probably even some who don’t) have probably been subjected to this.  I am deeply concerned about making this world a better place, and one way I try to do that is by sharing resources for understanding what’s going on in this crazy world and what we can do about it.  Going forward, I hope this blog will help organize and memorialize those types of information resources (both for myself and others) and provide a space for discussing them.

Because this is a somewhat presumptuous (egotistical?) enterprise, let me with great humility invite you to visit this blog and participate with me in learning about the scourge of poverty and inequality in our world and what we can do about it.  I don’t have aspirations for this to be a top 10 blog, but rather something useful for my network of friends and colleagues concerned about these issues.  You can visit the blog on the Web whenever you like or subscribe via e-mail or (if you’re really blog-savvy) to the feed.  If you have suggestions, comments, or critiques, please let me know via comments on the blog or through e-mail.  I hope to post pretty regularly, though probably not every day, but I will try to be as responsive to your questions and requests as soon as possible.   Thanks for joining me on this experiment and journey.  Peace.

  1. Good-on-ya, Bill.
    This blog inspires me to thoughts of blogging about economically-sustainable, socially-just housing delivery systems.

  2. Bill, thanks for the invitation to have access to your thoughts and knowledge. In addition to oppertunities to learn, I hope there will be oppertunities for those of us who are not as tied into this world as you are to participate in meaningful ways.

  3. Bill,
    Thanks for starting this blog and sharing your knowledge (and the knowledge from others) with us. While poverty has always existed, right now is a particularly very daunting and challenging time for everyone. Hopefully folks can mobilize around some solutions to if not eradicate, at least help alleviate, some of the impact of poverty.

    Thanks again,
    Vera
