"The Making Of A Democratic Economy"

The authors of “The Making of a Democratic Economy” say what the United States has now is an unsustainable “extractive economy” that doesn’t work for many of its citizens. It values profit over all else. The alternative isn’t state socialism, it’s a new economy built on community good, inclusion and sustainability. The Evergreen Cooperatives in Cleveland offer a great example.
