Little Magazine, Big Ideas

May 22, 2005 | American Prospect |
Scott Stossel and Joshua Green, now of The Atlantic, Jonathan Cohn of The New Republic, and David Callahan, author of three public-affairs books, also worked for the Prospect early in their careers.
The prescriptive focus of the magazine -- what policies were needed to generate economic growth? to reduce inequality? to protect the environment? to provide universal health coverage? -- reflected an underlying optimism that political power was within reach.
