Building Bridges: America Beyond Capitalism with Gar Alperovitz

Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
National Edition
Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
America Beyond Capitalism:
Reclaiming Our Wealth, Our Liberty and Our Democracy
Gar Alperovitz, Professor of Political Economy, University of Maryland
and co-founder of the Democracy Collaborative

As discontent with the economic and political status quo mounts in the wake of the “great recession,” Gar Alperovitz’s “America Beyond Capitalism” suggests a bottom-up effort currently already underway in communities across the U.S., which point in the direction of, among other things worker-owned cooperatives, and community land trusts, supported by policies and resources from municipal, state and federal government. Ongoing economic pain is likely to continue to inspire such initiatives to demand further action to democratize the ownership of capital, so that ownership goes to the 99% in new ways rather than to the top 1%.”
