Capture the DP power core but bring along some new economic thinkers

This capture of the DP commanding heights needs a new economic think tank
Drawn “broadly ” from the several currents of real progressive economists
As a macro economist I see the necessity to re found macro policy
We have fore fathers
like Kalecki Lerner and Vickrey
And a wide range of contemporaneous eclectic allies
From the likes of theorist joe Stiglitz to policy Merlins like bobby Reich and Jamie Galbraith
Obama built his policy team basically out of inherited Clinton cadre
They must be pushed out …completely
Senators Warren or Brown or Sanders
Despite rooted job class orientations

a real economics brain trust 
 steeped in potential progressive best practices
