The purpose of AmeriThunk is to address the challenges of America’s politics and economy by empowering the public to define the future of our cities, states, and country. AmeriThunk seeks to accomplish this by re-focusing our economy on improving human welfare and transforming American government to become more focused on the needs of common people.
Content produced by AmeriThunk seeks to illuminate the harms and inefficiencies caused by American institutions. After these harms are thoroughly explained, the content will propose systemic changes to these institutions to promote the flourishing of human welfare, responsive politics, and equitable governance.
Ultimately, AmeriThunk exists to facilitate a discussion about fundamentally improving the systems and institutions that make up American society. We hope you'll join us in that discussion.
