About this capture
Issue #30, Fall 2013
Capitalism Redefined
Nick Hanauer & Eric Beinhocker: What prosperity is, where growth comes from, why markets work—and how we resolve the tension between a prosperous world and a moral one.
The New Politics of Evasion
William A. Galston & Elaine C. Kamarck: New thinking and favorable demography have largely addressed the Democrats’ old problems. Now it’s the Republicans who can’t face reality.
Winter Has Come
Andrew S. Weiss: The “reset” with Russia worked, until Putin sabotaged it. Now the relationship is in tatters. Here’s how to save it—if we even want to bother.
The Parenting Gap
Richard V. Reeves, Isabel Sawhill, & Kimberly Howard: The first two years of life are crucial. We need to help lower-income parents do better—and demand that they do.
The Tech Intellectuals
Henry Farrell: The good, bad, and ugly among our new breed of cyber-critics, and the economic imperatives that drive them.
Joan Walsh: Four years after Obama took office, George Packer sees little hope for the liberal project. Why is he—along with many, many others—so depressed?
Hatreds Ancient and New
J.J. Goldberg: There is and will always be anti-Semitism. But has it really remained unchanged from medieval times to fin-de-siècle Europe to today?
Oracle’s Odyssey
Seyla Benhabib: Albert O. Hirschman lived a dramatic twentieth-century life and sought to use it to create a more humane social science.
Fiscal Drag
Meg Jacobs: Finally—about 40 years too late—the tide may be turning against austerity.
Diana Wueger: The gun industry and lobby have a stranglehold on our politics, but a rhetorical shift by gun-control advocates could help break it.
Editor’s Note
The Editors: Michael Tomasky introduces Issue #30
Build Bridges, Not Fortresses
Bruce Raynor & Andy Stern: Waiting for the workers to rise up isn’t a new idea—it’s the same idea that got labor into its mess in the first place. A response to Rich Yeselson.
Letters to the Editor
Democracy Readers: Letters from our readers
Life of the Party
Ethan Porter: Party platforms don’t matter—but they can, and they should. A platform-writing process that included party faithful could energize our politics.

In Industrialized America, Why Do Members of Congress Favor Farm Subsidies?
