SEIU leader Andy Stern will be in town visiting with SEIU Local 790 activists on Wed 10/18 at noon.
Also, a fond farewell to International Forum on Globalization researcher/activist Dale Wen as she relocates from our fair City of SF to New York City.
I have found the work of Dale Wen very helpful. Dale's great analysis China Copes with Globalization for the International Forum on Globalization is excellent.
I especially liked her analysis of China's changing workforce, health care system, and on growing poverty and inequality were very helpful, as was the section on China's diverse 'New Left'.
Wen has a great website as well - Dale's China Page
