Up Again at Episcopal Cafe

My newest piece for the Episcopal Cafe has been posted.  It's a reaction to "the new Carnegies."  It's a reflection both current and historical, I think; so take a look, and let me know what you think (there or here).

I'm raising a question: what ever became of investing in human resources - a question that goes way beyond simply adding jobs and employing people.  Investing in human resources involves good public education (K through whenever); good public health (because all our health is public); and, an economic that, while not preventing some of the rich from getting richer, at least strives to prevent the poor from becoming poorer.  Sure, there are good employers that do invest in their people; but really investing in human resources as a society will take a whole lot more than that.
