About The American Prospect

The American Prospect is a magazine of ideas aimed at revitalizing liberal thought and politics. Now entering its fifth year, the journal has become one of the leading sources of innovative thinking about public policy, politics, and social trends. It is currently published four times a year.

The founders of The American Prospect are columnist Robert Kuttner; Robert B. Reich, now Secretary of Labor; and Paul Starr, professor of sociology at Princeton University. New Prospect, a nonprofit organization they established, publishes the magazine independently.
