I write books, run a small investment consultancy, and serve on a very small school district governing board. I worked for several years on development projects in West Africa, also researched an MS in the area. Started a Coop in Cote d'Ivoire, lost during civil unrest. Recent reading in US history helped me ground current dynamics in a long-term context.
