Progressive Economy is an initiative launched in 2012 with a major objective: to generate a truly public and informed debate on economic and social policy at national, European and global levels and actively promote *progressive thinking *at academic and at political levels. Without public debate, without clear policy choices, there can be no real democracy. Lack of choice breeds frustration, populism and the growth of anti-politics. *Progressives have a duty* to demonstrate to citizens that they do have a choice and to do what it takes to win the *battle of ideas *in these core areas for the future of our societies. The Progressive Economy initiative provides a new and open space for public and informed debate, contributing to building a contemporary progressive economic and social vision for Europe. See our website for information on Progressive Economy activities and events. The Progressive Economy initiative is supported by the S&D Group in the European Parliament .
