The Progress Report
Welcome to your portal to a better world, one working right for everybody.
The Progress Report is your source for the latest stories on taxes, subsidies, commonwealth, and the environment.
Here is where to go for news you may have missed about how around the world humanity is inching toward an economy working right for everyone.
The articles we link to come from reputable sources all over the web, from mainstream to cutting-edge.
With the news comes views from today’s most insightful thinkers.
You’ll see how economies work, why they don’t work so well, and what you can do about it.
Our politics do not fit tidily on the conventional left/right spectrum since we distinguish between private property and social surplus, between rights and privileges, and between license and liberty; if ever you’ve had a hard time finding an ideological home, this may be the place for you!
Our editor is Jeffery J. Smith, who gets interviewed, published in both the academic and popular press, who has testified before various governments, and who runs the nonprofit, the Forum on Geonomics. Our writers include Dr Fred Foldvary, professor of economics at Santa Clara University, author of many scholarly works, and forecaster extraordinair who predicted the 2007 recession ten years in advance. Our founder is Hanno Beck, a data specialist who once worked for Ralph Nader.
The Progress Report is owned by both the Banneker Center (its founder) and by the Geonomy Society (its current operator).
