Gar Alperovitz on The Laura Flanders Show

Fighting for a new systemic vision

In this week’s program, Laura Flanders talks with Gar Alperovitz, professor of Political Economy at the University of Maryland and author of numerous books, the most recent of which is “What then must we do - straight talk about the next American revolution”, on the movement for a new economy. With the recurring crises, the notion that we need a different economic system is beginning to gain support outside the traditional left. Alperovitz discusses the current fight-back and preliminary moves toward a democratization of the ownership of capital.
