Lawrence O'Donnell and KIND

On the other side of the break is an MSNBC video that features Lawrence O'Donnell discussing the charitable organization Kids in Need of Desks (KIND).  

In this video, Larry explains how charitable donations to KIND are helping children in Malawi get desks for their classrooms.  Equally important is that Larry's story illustrates how jobs are created  -- via demand for a good, classroom desks in this case -- and not by tax breaks for uber-rich "job creators." 

Imagine ordinary Malawians, with stimulus provided via exogenous charitable giving, demanding goods and services and this demand is helping to create jobs for other Malawians.
