I heard a news brief referencing "The Third Way."
Let's take a look ON THE INTERNET.

SNIPPET: “Third Way represents a movement dedicated to creating a society based on Justice, Community and Individual freedom against one that is based on Greed, Globalisation and Tyranny.
Third Way stands against all forms of social injustice, racism and religious bigotry. Third Way is for everyone. We act as a Think-Tank for positive ideas and apart from this website also publish a quarterly magazine Third Way and occasional books and pamphlets. We advocate Direct Democracy along Swiss lines using referenda and citizens initiatives.
We support small business and co-operative ownership.
We also support organisations that promote these ideals in the field of Politics (National Liberal Party), Ecology (Mother Earth), Trades Union (Solidarity), Culture (Counter Culture), and many other areas of life.”
ON THE INTERNET in Washington, DC:
“SNIPPET:”THIRD WAY is the leading think tank of the moderate wing of the progressive movement.”
As I understand it, the Third Way is a bipartisan approach between the Left and Right where compromise allows a new way forward. This is based on the idea that, if everyone gives in, and does exactly what the Left wants, we can really progress rapidly to a Marxist utopia. This is The Third Way in a nutshell.
THIRD WAY MARK!
If memory serves me correctly, The Third Way was one of Bill Clinton’s babies or he at least supported it.
It was about co-ops and guilds rather than a complete free market or union/government-run industries.
I remember reading a book back in the 80's titled "The Third Way on Trial" detailing the failures of this so-called improved economic system.
Their economic models may not be that good, but thier fashion ones have some nice curves to them!
FCC Moves to Regulate InternetEven Though the Law Calls for Internet to be Unfettered by Federal or State Regulation

SNIPPET: This last approach, presented at the hearing as the third way, is the preferred avenue of Genachowski, who unveiled the plan in May.
The third way approach would still allow the government the authority to heavily regulate the Internet because it would be classified as a telecom service. However, under this approach, the FCC claims it will exercise forbearance, a regulatory doctrine whereby the government promises not use its regulatory authority in most cases.
Commissioner Michael Copps, at the FCC, sought to frame the issue in terms of consumer protection, claiming that consumers find themselves in quite a box because government, he claimed, had been all but shorn of the authority to regulate Internet service.
Copps said he was worried about relying purely on the private sector for Internet-based innovation, saying that the problems of such an approach could be seen in the 2008 financial collapse and the recent Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
We need to reclaim our authority, Copps said.
