Are cooperatives the answer to America’s economic woes?

“Either we innovate, or we die and decay,” declares Gar Alperovitz in this episode of Nation Conversations. Indeed, innovation and revamping our economic system are dominating national discourse right now, but with limited consensus. Alperovitz, a historian and political economist, offers ideas and concrete examples of what forms innovation, even in its earliest stages, might take. Listen to the podcast to learn more about the forces shaping what Alperovitz considers the most interesting period in American history.
