What we're about

We're currently meeting online. You can participate either by webcam or telephone.

We welcome people from any political party or independents interested in economic policy and its importance. Economic policy should be practical, not based on ideology. Some economic history is also relevant. We have friendly networking and discussions among open-minded people.

Here are some possibilities for finding some common ground for economic policy:

.

. policies should benefit the public, not favor special interests (no corporate welfare or other government favoritism to special interests);

. seek the right balance between the three sectors of the economy: government, market, and the third sector (called the non-profit sector, voluntary sector, etc.);

. for services that need to be provided by government, we should attempt to introduce incentives for government efficiency;

. as long as there are taxes, we should use the least harmful kinds of taxes;

. and there need to be practical principles for ownership rights, including ownership of things that are produced by human effort (such as houses, machines, cars, etc.), and ownership of land and its natural resources, which no person produced, but for which we need to have clear rules for society to work well.

.

Can open-minded people from different political parties work together to promote practical economic policies, including legislation and candidates who advocate beneficial policies?

At the beginning of each discussion in this Meetup group, people suggest possible topics (such as issues, legislation, basic aspects of economics, news, elections, etc.). Then we pick one or two topics to discuss that day. We can also consider choosing a topic ahead of time for the next Meetup.

Some of us also participate in a local and state chapter of a national non-partisan organization aiming to overcome polarization in this country.

Additionally, some of us also participate in another Meetup group related to aspects of society and social ideas. "Science & Sci-Fi - online": https://science.meetup.com/81/
