One New York: An Agenda for Shared Prosperity

That's the title of a new report from Frank Mauro, James Parrott, Trudi Renwick, David Kallick and Jo Brill at the Fiscal Policy Institute on reviving New York's economy. It's dense, but worth reading. Check it out and let us know what you agree with and what you would prioritize.

From the Executive Summary:
One New York presents a package of interrelated economic and fiscal policy recommendations aimed at addressing the major economic challenges and opportunities facing New York State, which it groups into the following two categories:
  • Helping New York's regions grow together. The state economy as a whole is expanding, but growth has been highly uneven.
  • Strengthening and expanding the middle class. New York's economy is increasingly polarized between rich and poor with a shrinking middle class.
