Movement Strategy & History

In order to find solutions to our current political and economic issues, there needs to be full systemic change. Gar Alperovitz, political economist, historian, and co-founder of the Democracy Collaborative discusses the need for a new economic system in this article for Aljazeera America. While there is an increasing push for reformation in America, Alperovitz writes that we must go beyond the specific problem of inequality and instead look at an entirely new system for our society.

A new momentum is quietly building, and it’s not a moment too soon.
