CREATIVITY--THE MOST VALUABLE ASSET
Here's an op-ed piece by Tom Friedman in yesterday's New York Times that's well worth a read. It starts out to be about the controversy about that mosque that's planned for the vicinity of the World Trade Center site, but there's a big part of it that is about creativity--how it happens, why it's so much needed in the U.S. today. "We live in an age," Friedman writers, "when the most valuable asset any economy can have is the ability to be creative — to spark and imagine new ideas, be they Broadway tunes, great books, iPads or new cancer drugs." I'll drink to that.
