"The whole point of the law is that it’s not about giving people equal status because you like them. It’s about freeing people from subjection to the arbitrariness of other people’s benevolence." Fintan O’Toole

Non sono le misure di politica economica che sarebbero necessarie, nè piani di sviluppo o investimenti, ma a volte le cose funzionano anche “nonostante” e succede che: http://inchieste.repubblica.it/it/repubblica/rep-it/2014/03/11/news/operai_riaprono_le_aziende_fallite_in_italia-80716799/?ref=twhi

Progressive Economy is a new initiative launched in 2012 with a major objective: to generate a truly public and informed debate on economic and social policy at European and national, as well as global, levels and actively promote progressive thinking in these areas at academic and at political levels.
Progressive Economy is a long-term initiative with a strategic vision of its contribution to progressive thinking and action, not a one-off event.
Without public debate, without clear policy choices, there can be no real democracy. Lack of choice breeds frustration, populism and the growth of anti-politics. Progressives have a duty to demonstrate to citizens that they do have a choice and to do what it takes to win the battle of ideas in these core areas for the future of our societies.
That is why the S&D Group has launched the Progressive Economy initiative, which will create a new and open space for public and informed debate, and which will contribute to build a contemporary progressive economic and social vision for Europe.
