I quoted Philip Greenspun's Economic Recovery Plan on my blog: http://lessco2essay.blogspot.com/2010/10/how-to-write-economic-recovery-plan.html Part of the rhetoric of a generic economic recovery plan is (in part) trying to restore an older previous state of affairs. In writing my own Economic Recovery Plan, I ran into difficulties because I defined the problems very broadly. The outcome is in the following posts: I settled for a few very narrow proposals that are not a return to the past at all. Recovery, if it happens, will be a side effect of moving ahead. My perception of the kind of change that can happen in 11/2010 is the name of these kind of plans needs to change. Instead of "recovery" the rhetoric should be built around a sense of "advancement" or "moving ahead". Instead of thinking of reviving manufacturing, I suggest we take the digital computing capabilities and thermodynamic and microeconomic realities that are dimly visible and bite down hard.
