The Clinton Foundation and The Third Way

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

In beginning to look at the CGI….Gonna start by looking at their own media. So below a film….in which the basic philosophy of what the CGI (The Clinton Global Inititive) does,  is described. And the most key element of the entire thing….is “We dont’ believe in the artificial boundaries between governments, nonprofits, and businesses…” This is the famed Troika that can and will and is redefining public spending. This….is the 3rd Way…personified with pretty much exponentially more power and grace (and most importantly: effectiveness) than anywhere before it. And… looking at Transparency…. inspiring it….getting really into it…taking it way beyond the pie graph….across these Three Areas of Public Spending……again….you’re looking at a whole new world.

The primary thing the CGI does is put people together …but it puts people together ACROSS THESE THREE SPHERES. There will be a day that an agency like the MTA will not be able to bottle up public transportation spending….that day will come because of the understanding and promotion of the TROIKA that The Third Way epouses, and the CGI works actively across, every moment of every day. Businesses, NGOs, and Governments. And an individual…can rally the support of all three to get something done. That’s an amazing new development in Public Spending…and it’s held up as an example almost singuarly…by the Clinton Global Initiative. And if this philosophy were to become the dominant model of Public Spending around the world…ur looking at a progressive revolution finally beyond that made by FDR beginning in 1933.

Tessa Edick in the Hudson Valley is at the forefront of merging high-end cuisine-art and farming and media…in the hudson valley …in an effort to brin- on a global sort celebration of farming, and she  is changing lives by challenging us to think about the way we eat.

As founder of FarmOn!, a 501C3 organization, she’s creating a culinary collaboration between farmers, schools and colleges (Including the Cornell University School of Agriculture), celebrity chefs (did someone say Jean-Georges Vongerichten?) and business owners, small and large. Why? She’s pulling resources and funding, creating educational programs, and shifting the area’s focus to farmers—or, as she likes to call them, “starm-ers”—to raise focus on the importance of eating local.
