From Ted Howard, co-founder of the Democracy Collaborative, and Marjorie Kelly, author of The Divine Right of Capital and Owning our Future, The Making of a Democratic Economy is a clarion call for a movement ready to get serious about transforming our economic system. Illuminating the principles of a democratic economy through the stories of on-the-ground community wealth builders and their unlikely accomplices in the halls of institutional power, this book is a must read for everyone concerned with how we win the fight for an economy that’s equitable, not extractive.
Join Marjorie Kelly and Ted Howard as they present their new book in conversation on Wednesday, September 11th at Busboys and Poets.
"It’s not enough to imagine another world is possible, we need to feel and taste it. Kelly and Howard give us the concrete stories we need to truly believe in this new world."—Naomi Klein, author No Is Not Enough, This Changes Everything, and No Logo
“A democratic economy should be one with a lot of diversity, reflecting the needs and desires of the people who live there … we need to take on what Kelly and Howard call capital bias—the structures that keep alternatives starved for the resources they need to keep the lights on, while a firehose of financialized money continues fueling the parts of our economy that are creating the problems in the first place, raising rents, extracting wealth, and spewing ever more carbon into the air.”
—Aditya Chakrabortty, senior economics correspondent, The Guardian, from the Afterword
