Gar Alperovitz – Replacing Corporate Capitalism: Why We Need a Next System
Gar Alperovitz - Replacing Corporate Capitalism: Why We Need a Next System
This keynote speech was delivered at the 2018 National Bioneers Conference. Introduction by Bioneers Co-Founder and CEO Kenny Ausubel. As ecological and economic justice movements hit the same hard limits of possibility, being realistic in our time in history means getting serious about what might have formerly been seen as impossible: actually replacing our broken corporate capitalist system.
Gar Alperovitz, co-founder of the Democracy Collaborative and co-chair of its Next System Project, will show how we can begin to build together for the systemic change we need to save both democracy and the planet. As a political economist, author, former legislative director in the House and Senate, nonprofit innovator and scholar, Gar will share breakthrough models for community-based political-economic development and new institutions of community wealth ownership. He’ll highlight local, state and national policy approaches to community stability in the era of globalization that really work and can spread widely.
