Reimagining American Community

Our debut effort, talking with Matthew Loftus (of the Doctors Without Boredom blog) about from everything from healthcare in East Africa to Japanese social coops to a book on how this country’s old system of federated organizations used to work.

About the Author
A native Texan, Elias spent several good years studying classics and medieval Italian at UC Berkeley before wasting several more years in financial journalism around Chicago. He has written for Strong Towns, the American Scholar, the New Urbs blog, and the Gary Catholic Worker and is the co-author of a textbook on character education. He briefly published something called The Armchair Historian. None of his three teenage daughters display an interest in the Greek and Latin classics thus far. He and his family reside in leafy Valparaiso IN.
