"Sixteen for 16"  A Progressive Agenda

for a Better America


    Salvatore Babones 


Salvatore Babones is an associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington DC.  He is an associate professor of sociology and social policy at the University of Sidney.  His academic research focuses on social inequality and economic growth.

The progressive movement is on the march in America and this accessible book points toward a destination.  "Sixteen for 16" offers a new agenda for the 2016 US election crafted around sixteen core principles that all progressives can believe in,  from securing jobs to saving the Earth.

Decades of destructive social, economic, and political policies have devasted poor, working, and even middle class American communities.  It is now clear  to everyone that the emperor has no clothes, that harsh austerity does not bring prosperity, and that the wealthy have no intention to see their wealth trickle down.  Each generation is no longer better off than the ones that came before.

Here is another plan for action for everyone who cares about the future of America.
