There’s no such thing as progressive capitalism
Progressive capitalism sounds like an oxymoron to me. Capitalism is inherently anything but progressive. But I respect Stiglitz, so I'm willing to listen.
Ansiosa pra saber que raios Stiglitz tá chamando de "progressive capitalism"...

Does the 'ism' make the people, or do people make the 'ism'?

Capitalism is a wild animal.

The 40-yr period is apt. 1945-1980 it worked fairly well. 1980-now, no. From 19th century to the war, no. 1945-80 is a small window of general prosperity that was slammed shut by Reaganites, who turned the clock back to 19th-C robber-baron monopolistic extreme capitalism.

Have to be careful to avoid single acts of mere redistribution, eg. cancel student debt. History shows it's when capital and labor contract as equals, with govt as arbiter, we have a shot at general prosperity. We need systemic change in political economy. See 1945-1980 to start.

Start by undoing Reaganism and its spawn: anti-organized labor, pro-monopoly, trickle down, anti-tax, financial globalization and deregulation, pro-delocalization, Citizens United, ultra-lobbying, the buying and selling of laws, norms, democracy. Eisenhower's Ghost in 2020?

Yep. Late capitalism has run its course. Our form started in the middle ages with coins & the marketplace. & the visibility of luxury items that u may not afford but there were cheaper stuff (consumerism) per the DANGEROUS MYSTIC MEISTER ELKHART
