For many citizens, our country's defining aspiration- that all people deserve the freedom to realize their full, individual potential - is increasingly unattainable. Our economy-once a powerful vehicle for the realization of our individual and common goals- no longer offers a sure ride to prosperity. Many of our strongest businesses rely on lobbyists and subsidies for profits. Rather than meeting their constitutional obligation to represent the interests of their fellow citizens, politicians act as stewards of their own political capital. The inherent challenge of creating effective public policy is exacerbated by false scholarship, flawed theory, and ideological fervor. This volume is our attempt to wipe the slate clean. In this volume we offer profiles of the top economic thinkers in the country, minds committed to intellectual innovation and analytical rigor. We feature classically trained economists, public policy professionals and scholars from a rich variety of fields in the following areas of expertise: banking and finance; budget and tax policy; business; economic theory; the federal reserve; globalization; labor force; monetary policy; and social investment. Our website at www.topwonks.org explores their scholarship in greater depth. Top Wonks: The Economy is a guide to a world of ideas that can drive our economy and our country forward. With it, we hope to put powerful ideas and vigorous thinking in the driver's seat of our economy.
