Gar Alperovitz, Lionel R. Bauman Professor of Political Economy at the University of Maryland, is cofounder of The Democracy Collaborative. He is a former fellow of the Institute of Politics at Harvard and of King’s College at Cambridge University, where he received his PhD in political economy. He has served as a legislative director in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and as a special assistant in the Department of State. Earlier he was president of the Center for Community Economic Development, Codirector of The Cambridge Institute, and president of the Center for the Study of Public Policy.
Gar's newest book speaks about where we find ourselves in history, why the time is right for a new-economy movement to coalesce, what it means to build a new system to replace the crumbling one, and how we might begin. It also suggests what the next system might look like. He proposes a possible next system that is not corporate capitalism, not state socialism, but something else entirely – and something entirely American.

Special midday at Elliott Bay program. Making for even more of a reason to partake of the wonderfully re-born Elliott Bay Café at lunchtime today is this midday talk by renowned scholars Gar Alperovitz and Lew Daly. Both affiliated with Demos: A Network for Ideas and Action, they xplore the history and future of wealth distribution in the U.S., and make the case that reforms to change income distribution could be used for the common good. Their book, Unjust Deserts: How the Rich Are Taking Our Common Inheritance and Why We Should Take It Back (The New Press), provides analysis and proposes that new income could be used to institute universal health care, rebuild our country's decaying infrastructure and support other programs. Lew Daly, a Senior Fellow at Demos, and previously a fellow of the Schumann Center for Media and Democracy, is also the author of God and the Welfare State. Gar Alperovitz is Bauman Professor of Political Economy at Maryland, and a founder of the Democracy Collaborative. His books include America Beyond Capitalism. (KingRat)… (mer)
