Quarterly Journal of The American Institute for Progressive Democracy


April - June - Issue 28

From the Editor

With a Presidential election campaign underway and with (some) progressive ideas playing a central role in the Democratic primaries, it is important to remember that issues should be at the forefront of thinking about that election. 

Nationalism and Anti-Immigrant Movements

by Ivan Light

To be a nationalist – to root for the good old USA for instance – must you be anti-immigrant?  Contrary to the usual view, that is not so.  Sometimes being a strong nationalist requires being in favor of immigration and immigrants.

Getting the Whole Loaf and Going for it Now

By Merrill Ring
Is political advice, such as that given by Paul Krugman, that we must think and act only in small ways good advice?  Surely not.

Paths to Higher Wages or Sharing the Pie with the Bakers

By Bob Gerecke
For prosperity – and for fairness – American workers’ share of the economic pie must be increased.  There are other ways of doing that but profit sharing is the best.  And that will need government intervention.

The Question of Wealth

By Tad Beckman
Where in the excess of income over expense does the profit of a business start?  Not when more is saved than immediate cost but only when wealth starts to accumulate.  And it is at that point, that immorality enters the game for that is where the excess money should go to all those engaged in the enterprise.

A Different Kind of War

By Charles Bayer
How do we respond to the recent growth of international terrorism?  No one knows.  But since our invasion of Iraq is what set these events loose, we must think through what we can and should do.

Submission Guidelines

Having developed far enough to expand our ‘stable’ of writers to those not on the TAIPD board or connected thereto and so to ask others to submit appropriate material for publication here, it is important to develop and explain guidelines.
