With this issue, Democracy asks: What more should government be doing to encourage greater entrepreneurship?
We’ve gathered a distinguished group of writers, led by William Galston, to answer the question. The symposium touches on a range of subjects—from immigration reform and minority business ownership to innovation clusters and entrepreneurship education—and offers bold new ideas on how to craft a future-oriented progressive agenda.
Also in the issue: the latest installment of our America 2021 roundtable series, this time on the future of climate policy. After the failure of cap-and-trade, what’s next? And in the latest entry in our First Principles series, we have a debate between Geoffrey Stone and William Marshall on one side and Doug Kendall and Jim Ryan on the other on how progressives should interpret the Constitution and fight conservative originalism.
The rest of the issue boasts the usual assortment of top-notch essays and reviews. G. John Ikenberry on the liberal international order. Heather Hurlburt on the military-industrial complex. Harold Pollack on the war against vaccines. David Strauss on William Brennan. And much more.
