Profile

Student of Human Services

I support Democracy at Work because I feel we need alternatives to capitalism... The current economics of the United States is failing to adequately support the population in real work with dignity and living wages to support a sustainable society.

    We can do better than capitalism.

    Democracy at Work is a non-profit 501(c)3 that produces media and live events. Based on the book Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism by Richard D. Wolff, our work analyzes capitalism critically as a systemic problem and advocates for democratizing workplaces as part of a systemic solution. We seek a stronger, fuller democracy – in our politics and culture as well as in our economy - based on workers’ equal collaboration and shared leadership inside enterprises and throughout society.

    We create the following media projects:

    • Economic Update with Richard D. Wolff, a weekly TV and radio show and podcast
    • David Harvey's Anti-Capitalist Chronicles, a bi-weekly podcast
    • Global Capitalism: Live Economic Update, a bi-monthly lecture in NYC, filmed and released on Youtube
    • Capitalism Hits Home, a bi-weekly podcast
    • Puerto Rico Forward, a monthly podcast
    We also host a blog, release limited items such as books, and offer partial support to volunteer groups across the world who are committed to advocating for a stronger, democratic economic system in their local communities.

    Each of these are a collaborative effort, and are brought to you by the hard work and dedication of a small team of workers. To keep costs low, we work via a digital office and rely on donated time from Prof. Wolff as well as other volunteer contributors. We are a 501(c)3 but operate internally as a cooperative to better embody the ideals we believe are a critical part of effective system change. 

    We rely primarily on the donations of our listeners to cover the costs of wages and salaries, and production costs for all of our projects. They are indeed the lifeblood that allow us to keep going and building a movement through our radio and tv programs, podcasts, websites, blogs, books, and events. If you like our work, please consider contributing to our projects on Patreon, purchasing items in our store, or donating directly. Any amount is extremely helpful in supporting our work!
