Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

GE invests $50m in 'green' China

From BBC:

US industrial giant General Electric has struck a deal with the Chinese government to invest $50m (£27m) on developing green technologies... This made its plans a "good fit" with the Chinese government's aims as it modernises the economy, it added...
It will also train 2,500 managers and government officials in the country over the next five years. "Not only do I view China as a market but I view it as a centre of excellence for research," said chairman Jeff Immelt.

Just out of curiosity, how much is GE investing in 'green' America? Is it their fair share?
