Clinton's top economic advisor, Gene Sperling, who balanced the budget during the Clinton administration, will be speaking at the Y. Though ostensibly Democrat, his economic policies and proposals transcend the left-right, populist-centrist ideological divide. He's also the proponent of a universal 401(k) to add onto Social Security as part of pension reform or, rather, rescue.
Much strife blossoms from shitty economic policies. Sperling strives for solutions both politically and economically feasible. Beyond rhetoric and posturing, this "numbers guy" is the guy you'd want around for actual plans and ideas... the guy you'd want to do your homework when you're too busy polemicizing.
