For our new special issue on "Reimagining Capitalism", The Nation asked sixteen activists and economic thinkers, "If you had the ability to reinvent American capitalism, where would you start? What would you change to make it less destructive and domineering, more focused on what people really need for fulfilling lives?"

The responses provide a provocative sampler of concrete proposals for fundamentally reforming the dysfunctional economic system, and  demonstrate that the nation is alive with fresh thinking and bold outlines for big change.

Now we want to hear from you. Send us your succinct proposal—not more than 400 words please!—by July 4. We’ll publish a forum of reader responses with elaboration and annotations for the most imaginative ideas.
