Toward a New Economic Model
The unquestioned assumption in all discussions about the economy is that there is only one system, and it’s the best. The free market – capitalism – rules. But is everyone for a system which is producing unprecedented concentrations of wealth and inequality? As the rich line their pockets and the average Joe struggles to make ends meet, might it not be time for a different set of economic arrangements? Michael Albert has developed alternative economic models.
