   People have been telling me for a long time that I should start blogging and, now that I have stepped down as an OCAP organizer, I think it’s time to actually get to it.  I intend to write on a fairly wide range of subjects. Some of it will still be related to anti-poverty struggles, including those of OCAP, but I also want to pay more attention to movement building and political initiatives at this vital time. The years since the Great Recession have seen a remarkable period of sluggish recovery, kept alive with zero interest rates and other such initiatives.
