Inclusive Economy

We need inclusive economies to address global risks posed by economic inequality and poverty. Rising to national and global challenges requires more than just growth accruing to powerful private interests and more than tax and transfer policies alone can provide. It requires economies to produce fair and just market outcomes on their own. This work stream is about such a vision. FES New York works with economic experts in academic, civil society and international organizations as well as with policymakers in governments toward progressive global economic transformation.
