About Progress.org
Our mission is to promote equitable and scientific ideas that practically support our evolving humanity. By recognizing the interconnectedness of all living things, Progress.org provides insight in the areas of economics, society, nature, and technology to affirm a world that works for everyone.

Our staff of volunteers range from trained economists to published authors—people who have both unique perspectives as well as an ability to view humankind, and its relationship with Earth, from a holistic perspective.

Founded in 1997 by Hanno Beck, Progress.org has a long and storied history advocating for social and economic justice. In 2004, Jeffery J. Smith took over as Executive Director and Chief Editor. Martin Adams has been Executive Director from 2015 - 2022, with Lawrence Bosek at the helm from 2017 through 2019. As of 2022 Progress.org is in incubation for a relaunch in design and mission led by Floyd Marinescu & Olivia Jol.

We deliberately do not include generic advertisements on Progress.org to ensure an enjoyable reading experience. Over the years, we have created a loyal base of readers who value our intellectual contributions by supporting us with their monthly financial contributions.

Thank you for supporting this important work.
