    One of the blessings – and curses – of working in resilience is that you have to attend a lot of meetings – a LOT of meetings. Too often, you’ll think you’re making real progress on dealing with an issue when the meeting will get sidetracked (or highjacked) when someone blurts out, “Well, what is resilience, anyway?” If there are academics in the room, almost invariably each of them will trot out their favorite definition, and then intellectual chaos ensues as each defends theirs and points out the flaws in everyone else’s definitions. The result? The meeting’s derailed,…

  • Age Discrim. Lawsuits: Like Shooting Fish in a Barrel

    The underlying premise of our legal system is that two competent adversaries plead their case before a neutral arbiter. A recent decision by the Supreme Judicial Court in Massachusetts, the state’s highest appellate court, shows just  how unrealistic this premise is today when victims of age discrimination who are poor or middle class cannot afford to […]

    This blog initially began with a rhetorical question – how do perpetrators of domestic violence act when they report for work?

    There was an article in the New York Times recently about the elusiveness of justice for African-Americans in the criminal justice system. This obviously reflects ingrained racism but it is also a symptom of a wider problem – the lack of equal justice for the poor and the middle class in America. The leadership of our nation’s civil and criminal justice system, […]

    For years, older workers in the United States have been subject to epidemic, unaddressed age discrimination. I recently wrote a book, Betrayed: The Legalization of Age Discrimination in the Workplace, which lays out the problem in graphic and undeniable detail.
