Non-partisan reform ideas

         24 May 2015 06:30 AM

Every political movement has ideas on how to reform our society. Whether right or wrong, most cannot be implemented as they appeal only to a partisan base. The purpose of this thread is to identify ideas which are likely to be politically feasible, as well as beneficial.

A good start would be to start listening to economists. My macroeconomics textbook has this list of propositions on which most economists agree.

I don't know whether this fits the bill, since some policies can be identified as broadly right-wing or left-wing, but at the very least there is non-ideological justification for them.

People are not likely to simultaneosly adept the same stance. Thus there will always be the part that gets it first (and sometimes the other part that gets it last). Thus every idea will be a partisan idea. The real danger is only when there is temptation to skip convincing the other side and force it down their throats by force.
