Reversing the Growing Income and Wealth Gap; A Living Wage as an American Value; Building on the Bernie Sanders Movement

Democracy Collaborative co-founder Gar Alperovitz speaks on Labor Day in 2016 on Ian Masters’ radio show, Background Briefing, discussing “the revival of social democracy in the United States that will emerge as the younger generation who were motivated by Bernie Sanders come of age in a country where the pain is so great that change has to come”:
