Framing: The Economy

This page is for creating frames about the economy. This includes both the U.S. economy and the global economy.

Framing Rounds Involving the Economy

Please list any rounds here. If you are the coordinator of the round, copy the round template from the Templates section, below, to this section and replace sections enclosed in braces to indicate the target close date and other information about the round. Add a reference to the diary that establishes the round where indicated.

Unfinished Pieces of Frames About the Economy

Please put unfinished text in sections here. Start with “Note 1” and number them successively.

Note 1

(This section is moved from the original Vision for America page.)

Insist that NAFTA, CAFTA, WTO, etc. include standards for worker safety, environmental protection, fair wages, and protection of the right to unionize. This will protect the dignity of foreign workers while somewhat lowering their cost advantage. It will prevent a "race to the bottom" to see which countries can most harshly exploit ordinary people.

Note 2

(This section is moved from the original Vision for America page.)

Yes, I remember Walter Mondale. In spite of what happened to him, we need to be honest about the need to raise more revenue. Federal expenditures, in round numbers, are now roughly 1/3 military, 1/3 entitlements, and 1/3 everything else. The deficit is as big as any third. In other words, balancing the budget without a tax increase would require eliminating 1/3 of all federal spending. That's a fantasy. We should say so.

We should make lemonade out of this lemon by seizing the opportunity to grossly simplify the tax system -- make "tax reform" a Democratic issue!

If we do this right, we get points for honesty, points for simplicity, points for favoring the little guy, points for protecting our kids from a crushing debt load, points for boldness.

I'm sure there are others out there with good ideas to add. C'mon and wikify this.
