A model economy is one that works for everyone. As the world’s leading economy, we lag behind other developed nations in our distribution of wealth where the wealthiest 10 percent of U.S. households have 76 percent of all the wealth in America. Nearly 40 percent of Americans will experience a year in poverty at some point during their lives. And communities of color face disproportionate economic challenges and barriers to opportunity. Our aim is to support policies that will raise incomes, revitalize communities that have been left out, and provide every child with a world class education.
