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.

Alperovitz discusses the current fight-back and preliminary moves toward a democratization of the ownership of capital.
