Subject: Exclusive Series: America Beyond Capitalism
We're excited to bring you a new, exclusive series from groundbreaking economist and author Gar Alperovitz. Truthout will be publishing weekly installments of Alperovitz's paradigm-shifting book, "America Beyond Capitalism: Reclaiming our Wealth, Our Liberty, and Our Democracy," which lays out a roadmap for the systemic economic change necessary to build a just society.
Join us in exploring questions of ownership, wealth distribution, cooperation, democracy, and what an economic future might look like that does not assume the dominance of corporate capitalism. Alperovitz suggests "the inherent logic of a very American community-based and community-sustaining direction that moves beyond the theoretical approaches at the heart of both traditional corporate capitalism and traditional socialism." Today, we begin with the introduction, which gives us a first glimpse of Alperovitz's ideology-eschewing vision - and demonstrates why this vision's time has come.
