Washington is broken, with the far left and far right making it increasingly impossible to govern. This will not change until a viable New Center emerges that can create an assertive policy agenda that expands opportunity and security for the American people.
This is the work of The New Center, a foundation which aims to educate and convene citizens around a policy framework based on four core tenets:
Opportunity• Security• Accountability• Ingenuity
The New Center convened an array of thinkers and leaders from across the political spectrum to help define the values and policies that can animate the New Center. The result is this booklet, Ideas to Re-center America.
The New Center will provide an intellectual framework for new ideas; be a destination for people who are tired of the overheated and histrionic fare served up by the Left and Right; and offer a credible counter to the growing bias on both sides.
“It says something about today’s politics that two friendly rivals seems to have more agreement with one another, at least on some core economic issues, that they do with the extremes in their own party.”
