First Principles: The Role of Government
Michael Tomasky: Progressives aren’t going to give up on government because of one election. A strong role for the federal government as incubator, nurturer, and watchdog is central to the progressive vision of society.
Enemies of State
Rick Perlstein: Historically, nothing has terrified conservatives so much as efficient, effective, activist government.
Why Conservatives Won't Govern
Alan Wolfe: Rather than using government badly out of a conviction that it always fails, they now refuse to allow government to do its work at all.
The "More What, Less How" Government
Eric Liu and Nick Hanauer: What is government for? Over the last two years, this has been the dominant question of American politics. Yet so few leaders have offered coherent answers.
America 2021: Jobs & the Economy
The Jobs & Economy Roundtable: In 2021, we will still bear scars from the Great Recession. But will America be a mighty economy again? What key investments are needed to ensure our growth and prosperity? Five experts take the long view.
The 10 Percent Solution
Andrea Louise Campbell: How progressives can stop worrying and love a value-added tax.
The Science Wars Redux
Michael Bérubé: Fifteen years after the Sokal Hoax, attacks on “objective knowledge” that were once the province of the left have been taken up by the right.
Amend and Improve, 2016
David Kendall: The key to improving health-care reform lies outside Washington. A response to Jacob S. Hacker.
The Philosopher President
Alan Brinkley: Two years into Barack Obama’s presidency, we can’t doubt his intelligence, but we can wonder whether there are more important qualities.
God and Country
Mary Jo Bane: Despite increasing religious polarization, there is surprisingly little religious hostility in America. So why doesn’t it feel that way?
Utopia Lost
Yehudah Mirsky: Human rights as utopian politics may have failed us, but human rights as catastrophe prevention is the least we must insist on.
Apocalypse Then, and Now
Jennifer Klein: Two historians trace our economic mess and growing inequality to that dismal decade—the 1970s.
After Hegemony
Nina Hachigian: America is no longer the world’s only pivotal power. Americans are adjusting—but can their leaders?
Moral Witness Through Comedy
Michael Tomasky: Imagining the hastening of the day when Arab Americans are just another unsuspected and unsurprising part of American culture.
Sawhill, Anrig Continue Debate at Brookings Event
News: On November 17, the Brookings Institution hosted a panel discussion featuring Brookings’s Budgeting and National Priorities Director Isabel Sawhill and Century Foundation Vice President for Policy Greg Anrig, reprising their debate on the deficit and entitlement reform published in our Fall Issue.
Warren to Head Consumer Financial Watchdog
News: President Obama appointed Elizabeth Warren to establish the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau—an agency that Warren first proposed in the Summer 2007 issue of Democracy.
Health-Care Reform, 2015
Jacob S. Hacker: What the next health-care fight will look like—and why it might be even harder than the last one.
Attention: Deficit
Isabel Sawhill and Greg Anrig: Should progressives embrace entitlement reform? Or look elsewhere to narrow the gap? An exchange between two leading fiscal experts.
A More Perfect Union
Henry Farrell: Over the years, European leaders forgot how to justify integration to their citizens. It’s time they remember—and proceed with tough reforms.
Advise and Dissent
David Dayen: History shows that dissent within the progressive ranks has been vital to advancing the liberal agenda. A response to Michael Tomasky.
Why We Must Judge
Roger Berkowitz: It’s not all relative: Without judgment, a society loses its sense of justice.
