The Rundown by Roosevelt Forward
1. Where Does Progressivism Go From Here?
Roosevelt Fellow K. Sabeel Rahman writes at The New Republic that the political fallout from 2016 will linger long after Election Day, and while progressive reformers have an opportunity to advance a new moral vision of democracy and the economy, they must make sure that it’s an inclusive one.
2. Bad for Business
Roosevelt Chief Economist Joseph Stiglitz writes in the Tampa Bay Times that Donald Trump’s business record, even if it weren’t littered with failure and bankruptcy, does not give him the tools he needs to manage a national economy. Bullying, cheating, and reneging on debts won’t make a country prosper.
3. An Open Letter to Baby Boomers
Roosevelt National Network Director Joelle Gamble and Editorial Director Tim Price warn that a self-absorbed generation of voters could send Trump to the White House and put the country’s future in jeopardy—but they’re not talking about millennials.
4. How to Save the International Order
Roosevelt Fellow Todd Tucker writes for Time magazine that as a rising tide of nationalism threatens the postwar international legal order, leaders must be willing to rewrite bad deals, exercise judicial restraint, and work harder to improve public opinion on globalization.
5. Merger, He Wrote
Roosevelt Legal Fellow Andrew Hwang kicks off a new blog series, Mergers & the Monopoly Moment, with a look at AT&T’s proposed acquisition of Time Warner and the ways in which it could hurt the public interest by limiting consumer choice.
