“On the political front, of course it’s a zero-sum game. If it’s all white males holding positions, you bring 10 women in, then it’s, ‘Women are coming!’ Get 10 blacks and it’s, ‘Blacks are coming!’ ‘Hispanics are coming!’ Zero-sum game. The seatmates might change but the chairs don’t move. In the economy, the number of chairs can actually increase.”

“In Afghanistan, there is a plan to build democracy hundreds of thousands of troops are protecting it. There is a plan to rebuild and reconstruct there. But many thousands of Americans die from violence and poverty every year and we don’t have a plan for reconstruction at home.”
