Capital and Main is a news website reporting on the current economy and our collective efforts to create a new and better one. Monday through Friday you will find original content covering politics, business, labor, jobs, the environment, culture – in other words, the economy and all the myriad areas of contemporary life that it touches.
Some posts come with well-known bylines, others are written by people who you don’t know but probably should. There is room in Capital and Main for business leaders and workers, elected officials and philanthropists, journalists and celebrities, community advocates and labor leaders. We offer provocative commentary, break news and feature the unvarnished stories of real people.
The concept for Capital and Main (formerly Frying Pan News) originated at the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy, but this is not a LAANE site – it is a platform for those who share the belief that we can and must build an economy that works for all of us. We hope you’ll join the conversation.
(Please Note: Capital and Main is a nonpartisan site that does not endorse candidates for elected office. Partisan comments posted in response to our articles will be taken down.)
