10.3.18 Seven Days review by Charlotte Dennett, Screwnomics by Rickey Gard Diamond
This paper is owned by two women, Paula Routley and Pamela Polston. I was so pleased by this review, shared in the midst of the Kavanaugh hearings. Charlotte Dennett, a fine author, knows economics is important. One of her books Thy Will Be Done, written with Jerry Colby, reveals the role of Nelson Rockefeller and evangelicals in the conquest of the Amazon in search of oil. . I’m honored she saw so much.

Claudia Cragg is a marvelous interviewer, and a fairly rare bird—an unabashed female focused on the economy. She understood the subject, drew me out, and posited that my "mum" was important to my writing this book, seeing right through me. You'll enjoy her voice, her questions, and will hear me laughing more than once. Screwnomics is on her "recommended" list, she says—and Claudia's smart show is now on mine, too!

Here’s a thoughtful conversation via podcast on “The Lowdown with Ira Wood” from WOMR in Provincetown MA. We talked about how most women, and men too, need to better understand how this economy works—and also its often misleading vocabulary.
You’ll see I’ve improved in this broadcast, more relaxed. Thanks to ORCA in Montpelier and to Samantha Kolbert at Bear Pond Books—and also to Peaco Todd, my cartoon collaborator, and to Cary Brown with the Vermont Commission on Women and their work with Change the Story. Thanks to our great audience too! Note Suzanne Gillis from Vermont Woman, and also Linda Wheatley who headed the organization of the first Gross National Happiness USA conference here in Vermont. Hurray for all those listed on two pages, who helped make Screwnomics possible!

A thoughtful interviewer, Cyrus is based in Mississippi. Consider subscribing to his show. I have.
