This illustrated presentation from historian and political economist Gar Alperovitz offers practical solutions to the structural crisis plaguing the American economic and political system, from wage stagnation and chronic unemployment to unchecked corporate and state power and growing inequality. Pointing to efforts already under way in thousands of communities across the U.S.—from co-ops and community land trusts to municipal, state, and federal initiatives that promote entrepreneurship and sustainability—Alperovitz marshals years of research to show how bottom-up strategies can work to check monopolistic corporate power, democratize wealth, and empower communities.

Alperovitz is one of the founders of the Next System Project. More information about the screening online.
