The last few years of economic malaise have left Americans in search of a new way forward. In his book America Beyond Capitalism, Gar Alperovitz lays out ideas for reinventing the American economy in a way that benefits all points on the production chain, from worker-owned companies to community banks.
Alperovitz is a professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, and the founding principal of the Democracy Collaborative. Learn more about their work at community-wealth.org.
