Marjorie Kelly and Ted Howard on the Making of a Democratic Economy

Our economy is designed by the 1 percent, for the 1 percent, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Marjorie Kelly and Ted Howard’s new book “The Making of a Democratic Economy: How to Build Prosperity for the Many, Not the Few” offers a compelling vision of an equitable, ecologically sustainable alternative that meets the essential needs of all people. Join us for a conversation with Marjorie Kelly and Ted Howard about how we can forge a new economic system that works for all of us in this installment of “Leonard Lopate at Large” on WBAI.
