There's the "what" of the ML-LTE (which I leave aside here for the moment) and then, in addition, we might give some thought to the "how"--going beyond just the diffusion of the LTE in prominent places.
For example, let's consider the target audience of the appeal.
We're not, of course, expecting to rehabilitate the very corporate interests which are quite happy to eviscerate Greece and other recalcitrant people.
Instead, we have to mobilize a cadre of influential people who, so far, though susceptible to a case such as DoDo describes here (http://www.eurotrib.com/story/2011/6/3/185758/3922#4), haven't so far openly become partisans for the anti-massacre (a forced starvation-diet isn't "austerity," it's murder) case.
Should there be some thought given to trying to "bring in outside 'help'" in this effort? I've given some thought to that.
Besides ET's "own" Jake S and others here, there are a number of very well informed people outside ET whose work has made them expert in the "who", "what" and "how" of the forces the so-called "austerity" view.
They include some of the authors I've recently recommended,
Janine R. Wedel, (Washington, D.C.) at George Mason University i Washington, D.C. would recognize immediately the point and value of such an effort as this LTE and could offer helpful suggestions if she were to have the time. homepage: http://janinewedel.info/
Georges Corm (Beirut) could be receptive for the same reasons. Our views are the expression of the case he has carefully presented. homepage: http://www.georgescorm.com/consultancy/index.php?lang=en / e-mail: email@example.com
Stephen F. Cohen , (New York), Professor of Russian and Slavic Studies, History; New York University. http://as.nyu.edu/object/stephenfcohen.html ; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Paul Krugman, Princeton, N.J. / New York
Elizabeth Warren, Cambridge, MA; Harvard University
we need, too, to find financial support to buy half or quarter-pages in the press. So, people in foundations, who give to such initiatives may be willing to help with that.
