Hello SPI

Today on the new blog Democracy Arsenal, Heather responds to an interesting post from last week on the “Top 10 Myths Progressives Need to Let Go of to Regain the Upper Hand in Foreign Policy.” Discussing #4 on trade policy, Heather contends that 93% of Bush voters favored labor and environmental standards in trade agreements — so how left can that sentiment really be?

Democracy Arsenal is the blog of the newly-launched Security and Peace Initiative (SPI). SPI is the offspring of the Century Foundation and the Center for American Progress and will focus on promoting a responsible US foreign policy. It will also place special emphasis on identifying and promoting emerging voices in progressive foreign policy, thereby building the next generation of foreign policy thinkers.
