America’s political landscape and economic thinking are shifting. The 2016 election—and the rise of powerful movements over the past decade and in recent months—has shown us that Americans are calling for progressive change. 

At Roosevelt Forward, we argue that the future of the American economy and our democracy depend on a new way of thinking about markets and a new way of thinking about government. With a renewed commitment to transforming corporations, restructuring markets, reviving democratic institutions, and reimagining the role of government, we can restructure our economy to make both the private and public sectors better serve more Americans. Ultimately, we believe that new politics and policymaking—that can equalize power in our society—are possible.
