Mr. Fisher became familiar with the AES through collaboration with
Manuel P. Asensio
, AES co-founder and policy advisor on a book based on his experiences. Mr. Fisher came to share the view of the AES that lack of accountability has been a central factor in our nation's continuing economic and fiscal crisis. While Mr. Fisher approaches these issues with progressive, left-leaning perspective, yet he shares the view that too much power has been concentrated in the hands of too few government officials.
Mr. Asensio previously authored the book

The AES Board of Directors looks forward to Mr. Fisher bringing a fresh perspective to bear on the pressing issues confronting American economic stability, and working on advancing bipartisan solutions.
