Walden Students are learning about sustainability according to a small article in todays Journal Times. Good for them.
According to the article, the class was initially developed by the Keystone Center for Education and funded by Sustainable Racine.
The first thing these students should be taught - I am not holding my breath - is the manner in which these organizations are sustained, or not. These organizations are sustained by donations. And these donations were made possible by wealth creation. And wealth creation is best achieved in countries with free economies.
Walden students are to "develop and ultimately implement a project that will enhance the sustainability of Racine's future." Great! My hope is that these projects will reflect an understanding that "sustainability" is best achieved in a capitalist and free country. We shall see.
And Sam Braun, I will be counting on you for the sensible insiders perspective.
