Introducing the Economic War Room
We’re excited to announce that the Roosevelt Institute will be home to a brand new project: the Economic War Room, the first-ever economic communications initiative that will accelerate and intensify the promotion of progressive economic ideas and policies into the public debate at a moment when the whole country is looking for solutions. Stay tuned for more about this exciting new initiative!
In the meantime, check out It's the Middle Class, Stupid!, a new book on how Washington and Wall Street have failed average Americans and what we can do about it, co-written by Economic War Room pollster Stan Greenberg. Click here to read the highlights selected by the Washington Post.
"Carville and Greenberg say the question 'How does this protect America’s middle class?' is the 'filter through which everything must pass.' 'There are some who want to be ‘quiet’ about the impolite topic of the fate of the middle class,' they write. But 'the predicament of the middle class is the only thing we’re going to talk about.'"
