Progressive Capitalism Is Not an Oxymoron

Author: Editor

Despite the lowest unemployment rates since the late 1960s, the American economy is failing its citizens. Some 90 percent have seen their incomes stagnate or decline in the past 30 years. 

This is not surprising, given that the United States has the highest level of inequality among the advanced countries and one of the lowest levels of opportunity — with the fortunes of young Americans more dependent on the income and education of their parents than elsewhere.

But things don’t have to be that way. There is an alternative: progressive capitalism. Progressive capitalism is not an oxymoron; we can indeed channel the power of the market to serve society.

 

In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan’s regulatory “reforms,” which reduced the ability of government to curb the excesses of the market, were sold as great energizers of the economy. But just the opposite happened: Growth slowed, and weirder still, this happened in the innovation capital of the world.

Author: Editor

The Land Use Department of Will County has joined the City of Joliet and the Housing Authority of Joliet to conduct an assessment of fair housing. 

The county is required to confirm and further opportunities for fair housing as a recipient of Department of Housing and Urban Development funds, according to a news release. The county’s “We WILL Build” initiative seeks to expand the range of opportunities for all by collaborating and advocating for opportunities, options and diversity in housing throughout Will County.

“Our Land Use Department does a tremendous job to ensure safe housing for our residents,” Will County Executive Larry Walsh said. “We are proud of our efforts to restore and preserve neighborhoods in Will County and make sure anyone is able to pursue the housing option of their choice.”
