At a moment in which corporate capitalism seems so deeply entrenched, could there be a just, sustainable, and democratic alternative? Are there feasible paths to get us there? Renowned environmentalist James Gustave Speth and political economist Gar Alperovitz answer those questions with a resounding yes! Co-chairs of the Next System Project, launched just last year, they will recount the Project’s major ambitions and accomplishments, discuss the historical moment in our politics and economy, assess the opportunities that are emerging to transform our society, and highlight the work already underway to build toward the next system.
