Overview
Boston Review, a bimonthly political and literary magazine founded in 1975, aims to foster public discussion and thus promote a more deliberative democracy by publishing both essays by experts and unbiased investigative reporting, together with select poetry, fiction, and visual art. The Review now hosts 1.5M readers online per annum. This grant will support the Review through two important transitions: shifting its focus from print to web to achieve greater growth in readership and impact; and modernizing its revenue model from traditional print to membership.

Grants to this Grantee
for a project to reimagine the ways we think about political economy in a post-neoliberal world  
Boston Review (BR) is magazine of ideas, independent and nonprofit, founded on the premise that addressing the most profound contemporary social and political challenges require serious public discussion. This grant will support a year-long project to create a vibrant space for challenging the neoliberal paradigm which has since the 1970s shaped our political economy, bolstered extreme inequality, yet failed to address new challenges—from climate change to Artificial Intelligence. BR will not pursue a fixed agenda, but explore the contours of a new paradigm centered on equality and liberty, shaped by an understanding of power in markets, with attention to the role of technology, public investment, and equitable growth.
