Since then, he has devoted his efforts to creating platforms that allow millions of people to learn more about money’s often destructive role in democracy while engaging and debating the US government on policy. According to the New York Times, he was evaluating all alternatives but stated that he was committed to covering the economy, which he described as “the issue that is touching every American in every setting.” The first Morning Meeting was held on June 29, 2009.
