Democracy at Work: Why We Need a Solidarity Economy with Richard Wolff



A $10-$20 donation is requested. Payment at the door is available too.

In this compelling new manifesto Dr. Wolff argues for a democratic alternative based on workers directing their own workplaces. Whether it is secure, well-paid, and meaningful jobs or a sustainable relationship with the natural environment that we depend on, our society is not delivering the results people need and deserve.  One key cause for this intolerable state of affairs is the lack of genuine democracy in our economy as well as in our politics. The solution requires the institution of genuine economic democracy, starting with workers directing their own workplaces, as the basis for a genuine political democracy. Here Richard D. Wolff lays out a hopeful and concrete vision of how to make that possible.
