Gar Alperovitz speaks about why the time is right for a revolutionary, new-economy movement — what it would mean to democratize the ownership of wealth, what it will take to build a new system to replace the decaying one, and more.  What people may be surprised to find out is that this revolution is already well under way in the United States with organizations like worker owned cooperatives, credit unions and local currency collectives already taking up a huge portion of the economy.

The renowned historian, economist, activist, and writer, is presently the Lionel R. Bauman Professor of Political Economy at the University of Maryland.  His latest book is What Then Must We Do? Straight Talk About the Next American Revolution.
