Creating A New World Out Of The Pandemic


There's a double-entendre in the song from "Wicked" that goes "I have been changed, for good."

We know the world changed during the pandemic, and changed greatly. But will the changes last, and are they changes for the good?

The book The New Possible: Visions of Our World Beyond Crisis brings together the essays of 28 people who have been thinking about the world we can create as we put COVID-19 behind us. In other words, not just return to business as usual.

Two of the authors join us; David Bollier writes about "the commons" and how the concept of them has been transformed, and Jess Rimington writes about post-capitalist ways of running an economy. We pick their brains about their concepts, and what it will take to realize them.
