Exchange Exemplar: An Economy That Works For Everyone

You question the value and fairness of capitalism at your peril in our country. Such questions can quickly get you labeled a socialist.

But Marjorie Kelly and Ted Howard of The Democracy Collaborative are all about keeping the country democratic (small d), and want to expand the concepts of democracy to the economic system as well.

Think local and small as the starting points, which they lay out in the book The Making of a Democratic Economy: How to Build Prosperity for the Many, Not the Few. It's about providing greater opportunity for the 99%.

We revisit our chat with the authors from 2019.
