Public Thinking about Economic Security: How Should We Take Charge of Our Future? (NIF Report)

This report analyzes the results of a series of citizen discussions about economic security that took place between September 2010 and April 2011 in 33 states and Washington, DC. Over 1,000 individuals from a wide range of backgrounds participated in these discussions sponsored by the National Issues Forums (NIF).

The discussions were framed by an NIF issue guide entitled, Economic Security: How Should We Take Charge of Our Future? Forum participants explored three options for addressing the issue of economic security.  Find more details and order info on the NIF website.

More about National Issues Forums and their Reports on the Issues…

The National Issues Forums (NIF) network includes civic, educational, and other organizations, and individuals, whose common interest is to promote public deliberation in America. NIF issue guides introduce participants to several choices or approaches to consider. Rather than conforming to any single public proposal, each choice reflects widely held concerns and principles. Panels of experts review manuscripts to make sure the choices are presented accurately and fairly. Look through all the NIF issue guides and their corresponding moderator guides, DVDs, and other resources at www.nifi.org/issue_books.

Reports are published periodically to communicate the outcomes of forums held across the nation about a particular issue. Making use of participants’ answers to forum questionnaires, reports from moderators, and in-depth studies of selected forums, these reports describe in some detail what happened as people deliberated about the issue at hand. View all NIF Reports on the Issues at www.nifi.org/reports/issues.aspx.
