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”:

Then finally we look into the new populist forces emerging on the right and left in America and explore how the movement that coalesced around Bernie Sanders could be built into a national political force that could reverse the growing income disparity and build upon local initiatives like regional banks and co-ops that are sprouting up across the country. Hear the full radio show.
