Professor Arnold Tapped to Lead Think-Tank
I almost spit out of my drink when reading this. Here you go:
The University of Southern California has announced the establishment of a new think-tank dedicated to finding solutions to political and social problems, headed up by the bodybuilder turned actor turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The think-tank, titled The USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy, plans to focus on finding bipartisan solutions to problems in five areas of interest: education; energy and environment; fiscal and economic policy; health and human wellness; and political reform. The problem solving will be guided by an emphasis in science and evidence, local solutions and resources, and our nation’s youth.
Schwarzenegger, who was also awarded a professorship by the university, will chair the institute’s Board of Advisors which features experience from both sides of the political aisle. The institute will kick-off with its first public event which is a one-day symposium on September 24, 2012. Schwarzenegger will be funding the institute and will serve as the keynote speaker of the 2013 USC Global Conference in Seoul, South Korea
They can’t be serious…
Oh the things you can buy for money.
