By now you know that one of the more contentious issues facing some of Hawaii’s voters is the Maui County initiatve calling for a temporarily moratorium on genetically modified crops. Those that favor it say you cant put a price on good health; opponents cite direct and not so straightforward consequences. Economist Paul Brewbaker would fall into the latter category. He presented his analysis to the Maui Chamber of Commerce.

Sometimes the deepest wisdom comes from humble sources;  it’s a lesson worth remembering, because most of tend to look toward the high and mighty for answers.   The play The Guru of Chai is a presentation of New Zealand’s Indian Ink Theater Company, and it’s a theatrical tour de force that encourages us to ask where true wisdom comes from.  The show is being performed at UH-Manoa tonight; Justin Lewis is one of its creators.
