Overview
American Compass is working to restore an economic orthodoxy that emphasizes the importance of family, community, and industry to the nation’s liberty and prosperity, by (a) reorienting political focus from growth for its own sake to widely shared economic development that sustains vital social institutions; (b) setting a course for a society in which all families can achieve self-sufficiency, contribute productively to their communities, and prepare the next generation for the same; and (c) helping policymakers navigate the limitations that markets and government each face as means for promoting the general welfare and the nation’s security.

Grants to this Grantee
for research on alternatives to neoliberalism  
American Compass’s mission is to restore an economic consensus that emphasizes the importance of family, community, and industry to the nation’s liberty and prosperity. This project is undertaken in cooperation with American Affairs, a journal of political thought and policy, published quarterly in print and online editions, with an editorial emphasis on exploring alternatives to neoliberalism. The project’s aim is to support the formation and development of right-of-center organizations similarly committed to rethinking the role that public policy can play in advancing the common good. Such thinking has begun to gain significant traction on the right-of-center and strengthening such organizations is vital to reshaping some of the most contentious policy debates and overcoming entrenched partisan gridlock.
