Road Warrior Recommendations

I do a fair amount of travelling for work and every trip fine tunes what I pack. Over time you figure out that some things work, some things don’t, and some things you find better versions of. I’ve been traveling with the following items for about 6 months and can definitely recommend them.

Woolite Travel Laundry Liquid Soap

Bestten 3 Outlet Portable Travel Surge Protector

Originally I bought this because there is NEVERĀ an abundance of electrical outlets in an office conference room. However, I’ve traveled to some remote areas where the hotel room didn’t have a convenient set of outlets.

I like how the cord wraps around the outside of it so there’s nothing hanging out of it.

$10 Million to fund Universal Basic Income Research

 

The Economic Security Project will spend $10 million over the next two years to research the idea. The project will fund groups like The Niskanen Center, which will research specific policies applicable for the U.S., and The Roosevelt Institute, which will analyze the idea on a macroeconomic level.

Would a universal basic income fix US economic inequality? One group is spending $10 million to find out
