4. ConConCon - report by Chris

      Structural reform of gov to get $ out of politics so it is policy neutral to resolve debates of left/right
      We should be on board to fix the decision making process
      Fear of a ConCon getting out of control (takes 38 states approve, though)
      a lot of fatalism about getting congress to fix the problem
      Two interesting key notes - Lessig's & conservative argument on the proper relationship between corps & gov.
