We are better than this - how government should spend our money

"We Are Better Than This fundamentally reframes budget debates in the United States. Author Edward D.

My favorite things

"In 2011 [the author/artist] was invited by the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City to curate an exhibit based on their collection.
