We're on the last chapter of Bonacich/Wilson's book. Please claim the section you'd like to summarize.

Also, get in touch if you'd like to join us on our field trip to Southern California, where we'll collaborate with the Los Angeles Public School to do a tour of the logistics cluster  that stretches from the ports of LA/Long Beach to the warehouses/Distribution Centers of the Inland Empire. We'll do this at the end of August.
