Congratulations on the fantastic college plan rollout! I'm in London, but the headlines/stories I've seen are great. That was quite a labor of love.
I wanted to send along some thoughts on economic issues, the Democratic party's rising populism and policy grounds for a financial transaction tax. I've shared these thoughts with Jake and the team. A memo is attached.
The bottom line is that I'm wary of the growing economic populism on the center-left and I believe an FTT is the kind of bold proposal that both makes sense on policy grounds and achieves important political objectives.
Jake suggested I send these thoughts to you; I leave to him and the team to figure out if it makes sense to discuss them in some group at some point.
It should be noted that George Soros is behind the financial transactions tax and Center for American Progress funder.
