Gar Alperovitz: America Beyond Capitalism
Activist and economist Gar Alperovitz offers a diagnosis of what ails America, and prescribes what Noam Chomsky calls “concrete and feasible” solutions.
YES! Co-founder and Executive Editor Sarah van Gelder will be introducing Gar at this event!
Alperovitz’s emerging “new economy” strategies propose locally-based, bottom-up efforts that democratize wealth and empower communities—changing a faltering system that, says Alperovitz, increasingly fails to sustain the great American values of equality, liberty, and meaningful democracy. Presented as part of the Town Hall Civics series with Elliott Bay Book Company.
