The Opportunity Society:Revisted
A few posts back, I talked about the Opportunity Society, a move away from the New Deal/Great Society programs. When my partners at the Yellow Line talked about this, they were short on the details, but had some good outlines. If you are looking for something that is more fleshed out, you might want to read The Radical Center by Ted Halstead and Michael Lind. They offer some great ideas that will rankle both liberals and conservatives, but will offer delight to Centrists. I would also consider The Real State of the Union which is edited by Ted Halstead. This book is a collection of essay from Atlantic Monthly and includes policy wonks from the New America Foundation, a centrist think tank. I've read both and they give some great ideas.
