Prosperity 2050: Is Equity the Superior Growth Model?
As our country inches its way out of the Great Recession and looks toward the future,
the need for a new policy framework to guide our economic growth is clear. The
economic model of the past several decades is failing nearly everyone, save those at the
very top. With the exception of the later years of the Clinton administration, economic
growth has been slower and less broadly shared over the past several decades, leaving
more and more families, even entire communities, to fall further behind and with
diminishing prospects for catching up.
