Wealth for the Common Good
Wealth for the Common Good is a network of business leaders, high-income households, and partners working together to promote shared prosperity and fair taxation. Its membership includes entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, school teachers, engineers, and elected officials of all backgrounds, political stripes and from all over the country.
Over the last 30 years, economic policies in America have slowly but surely shifted to disproportionately benefit the nation’s top earners. Wealth for the Common Good, which represents many of these individuals, was organized to help rebalance the economic system. The organization’s goal is to contribute to the public debate on taxes and support President Obama and Congress in creating a more progressive tax code.
With its partners, Wealth for the Common Good began organizing its network in 2008, at the peak of the economic crisis. The organization publicly launched our first campaign, to reverse the Bush-era tax cuts on households with incomes over $235,000, in the summer of 2009.
