In his book, David Parker discusses both ends of the political spectrum and everything in between, and he reminds readers that the timeless principles of economics are essential to the preservation of American democracy.

Parker went back to school at age 50 to gain a deeper understanding of these enduring ideas — and the missteps of nations that deviated from them — to write A San Francisco Conservative. Just as his first book, Income and Wealth, provided readers with a thought-provoking examination of the foundations on which this nation’s freedom rests, his latest book also serves as a message of reassurance and challenge to the conventional political thinking of the day.

The issues Parker addresses are those he has focused on for more than half a century, throughout his 40-year career as a teacher in San Francisco public schools. In A San Francisco Conservative, he reminds readers that “crises” have affected the American economy numerous times over the nation’s history — but they pass.

Parker provides well-researched support for his belief that economic opportunities always exist. He cautions that government leaders — especially those who identify themselves as progressives — are jeopardizing the very democracy that has produced prosperity.

Themes covered in A San Francisco Conservative range from education to taxes and the political process itself. Parker challenges the widespread belief that a “conservative” (whether a resident of San Francisco or elsewhere) lacks empathy or a personal commitment to help those who are less fortunate. Government programs supported by many in today’s progressive movement to counter this misunderstanding merely increase the nation’s deficit in dangerous ways, Parker says.

Parker began his career in education at the age of 24 and served students at San Francisco’s inner-city public elementary schools for four decades as a music teacher, followed by 10 years as a volunteer. While pursuing his career in education, Parker became a successful real estate investor. It was success in business that focused his writing, teaching and career as a professional musician. Parker spent 20 years as a member of the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra, then 20 years as leader of the Dave Parker Sextet, which twice headlined the San Francisco Fillmore Jazz Festival. His essays have been featured in The Economist, The Financial Times and prestigious law journals.

Scheduled to coincide with the publication of David Parker’s playfully titled newest book, A San Francisco Conservative, a new podcast series sharing that title showcases Parker’s views on the proper role of government and how individuals can arrange for the principles of a free-market economy to work in their favor. As the podcast’s co-host, longtime journalist Tom Martin, has noted, “David Parker’s scholarly approach to the study of political economy provides much-needed historical context to important topics dominating the news, including the progressives’ call for dramatically increased government spending.”

Dr. Tiffany Brandreth is affectionally referred to as either 'Dr. T' or 'Dr. B' by her clients. She is a leadership and organizational psychologist uniquely specializing in the intersection between Bias, Power, and Equity within Behavior, Process, Culture and Hierarchy.

Her expertise with C-Suite teams was earned through “speaking truth to power” long before its concept was coined, examining their health through foundational principles in systems theory, human behavioral sciences, and positive psychology. This gained the breadth and depth of experience within the toughest arenas partnering, challenging, and elevating executive leadership teams where she uncovers “What is being left unsaid?” as the source where breakthroughs occur, greatness thrives, and change begins.

Dr. B has been quietly yet powerfully shaping the DE&I field as one of the original pioneers since the late 1990s. Her vast experience leveraged from both internal and external leadership roles has kept her strategies, guidance, and approach rooted in reality as opposed to idealist theories impractical for the complexities and politics only understood from being on the ‘inside.’

Clients are kept confidential due to the risk, liability, or implications that bias, oppression, and truth can bring, unless permission to disclose. Anonymity is never compromised which allows the right and real work to get accomplished.

Quality over Quantity; Principle over Promotion; Truth over Preservation. These operating principles are why Tiffany’s reputation precedes her as a highly trusted, heavy weight disruptor yet with a delicate touch that inspires all to evolve. She is stepping out more visibly with urgency to help the industry re-think, re-educate and re-ignite DEI.
