Democratizing wealth

Today on Your Call: How do we democratize wealth in the US?

 

 

  

On today's Your Call , we’ll talk to Gar Alperovitz – author of What Then Must We Do? Straight Talk About the Next American Revolution.  Alperovitz says the usual prescriptions for making change -- political mobilization and labor organizing – aren’t working, so we should shift our focus to democratizing the ownership of wealth from the bottom up.  So what does that mean? And can it get big enough to make a difference?  Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here.  It’s Your Call, with Matt Martin, and you.

 

Guests:

Gar Alperovitz, professor of political economy at the University of Maryland; president of the National Center for Economic and Security Alternatives; founding principal of the University of Maryland-based Democracy Collaborative; and author of What Then Must We Do? – Straight talk about the next American revolution, a book that aims to provide a blueprint for a sustainable economy.
