Darity One of “Politico 50”

September 5, 2017

Sanford Professor William “Sandy” Darity Jr. is one of the “Politico 50.”  A print and online magazine covering Washington and U.S. politics, this is an annual list of 50 ideas that are “blowing up American politics and the people behind them.  Darity is number 36 on the list, along with his research partner Darrick Hamilton, professor of economics and urban policy at the New School, for their work on trying to end unemployment through a job guarantee. Their idea is that every American that wants a job should have one, through the government if the private sector can’t provide enough jobs, similar to how the Works Progress Administration functioned in the 1930s.
