New Policy Brief: In Pursuit of Prosperity

Posted by Lori Pfingst at Nov 15, 2012 02:35 PM |

Our latest policy brief, In Pursuit of Prosperity: Eight Strategies to Rebuild Washington State's Economy  was released today. It lays out our comprehensive vision to make Washington state a place where everyone can thrive.

As our newly elected leaders reconvene for next legislative session and beyond, it is important they recognize that widely shared prosperity doesn’t happen by accident.  History, supported by persuasive research, proves that prosperity happens when we deliberately invest in the foundations of a strong economy – broad and equal opportunity to build knowledge and skills, adequate compensation and support for workers, and adequate investments in conditions that foster economic growth.
