Need expert collaboration to spoonfeed Joe Sixpack on FedSubmitted by 1440 minutes on Sat, 02/07/2009 - 17:52
Without a lot of conceptual and marketing work, the federal reserve is way too complicated an issue for Joe Sixpack to digest. We need to spoonfeed the American people. IMHO, we need a coalition of Austrian economists, the best and the brightest of activists (such as uber meetup organizers), and libertarian PR/marketing/advertising geniuses to get together and figure out ways to explain the Fed in ways that are both easy to understand and emotionally compelling.
It was fun to attend and volunteer at the Philly End the Fed Rally, but I think that outreach needs to change in order to have much impact on the public. Fliers were written in a way that are likely to attract a small segment of conspiracy-oriented readers. IMHO, fliers and other outreach efforts should be crafted to show Joe Sixpack, in clear and compelling ways, the concrete destructive impact that the Fed has on the economy, and by extension on Joe's kitchen-table issues. In order to pull this off, I think that uber-activists must collaborate with Austrian economists and PR/marketing/advertising geniuses. What do others think about this?
