Among Larry Wilkerson’s vignettes, he touched on themes both cautionary and uplifting. The balance tipped throughout. Discussing empire, he drew memories of the familiar parallels. But he brought it home to each individual in their own ways. Each will judge if we’re rising or setting; half full or half empty.
On a recent Friday, David Smick was invited to Washington to give a lecture on his new book, the World is Curved: Hidden Dangers to the Global Economy. Though not sure he agrees with David, Wilkerson recommends a read, “I gotta remember he is a financial consultant for people like Lee Kwan Yew in Singapore, some of the major hedge funds in the world and so forth.” Smick explains in layman’s terms what has happened to us with regards to those worlds and “…whether he is right in terms of the solution or not, his explanation of the problem is pretty good.” Wilkerson says he has absorbed much of the same aspect from a lot of other people too, including what he calls some of our best minds.
