Scott Elias ’14 is bringing his radical game tomorrow:
Join us for a film screening in PAC 002 at 6:30 on Monday 4/29!
The Next American Revolution: Beyond Corporate Capitalism & State Socialism, featuring Gar Alperovitz, will be shown, with a follow-up discussion and pizza.
While there’s been no shortage of commentary about the structural crisis plaguing the American economic and political system, from wage stagnation and chronic unemployment to unchecked corporate and state power and growing inequality, analyses that offer practical, politically viable solutions to these problems have been few and far between. This Illustrated presentation from distinguished historian and political economist Gar Alperovitz is a rare and stunning exception. Pointing to efforts already under way in thousands of communities across the U.S., from co-ops and community land trusts to municipal, state, and federal initiatives that promote entrepreneurship and sustainability, Alperovitz marshals years of research to show how bottom-up strategies can work to check monopolistic corporate power, democratize wealth, and empower communities. The result is a highly accessibly look at the current economy and a common-sense roadmap for building a system more in sync with American Values.
