    Occupy the Future

    David Grusky, Doug McAdam, Rob Reich, and Debra Satz

    How the Occupy movement has challenged the gap between American principles and American practice—and how we can realize our most cherished ideals.

    The Occupy Wall Street movement has ignited new questions about the relationship between democracy and equality in the United States. Are we also entering a moment in history in which the disjuncture between our principles and our institutions is cast into especially sharp relief? Do new developments—most notably the rise of extreme inequality—offer new threats to the realization of our most cherished principles? Can we build an open, democratic, and successful movement to realize our ideals? Occupy the Future offers informed and opinionated essays that address these questions. The writers—including Nobel Laureate in Economics Kenneth Arrow and bestselling authors Paul and Anne Ehrlich—lay out what our country's principles are, whether we're living up to them, and what can be done to bring our institutions into better alignment with them.

  • Economics after Neoliberalism

    Economics after Neoliberalism

    Joshua Cohen

    How we can look beyond the tyranny of market logic in our public lives to reimagine the fundamentals of democracy.

    Bringing together thirty-two world-class economists, Economics After Neoliberalism offers a powerful case for a new brand of economics—one focused on power and inequality and aimed at a more inclusive society.

    Three prominent economists—Suresh Naidu, Dani Rodrik, and Gabriel Zucman—lead off with a vision for economic policy that stands as a genuine alternative to market fundamentalism. Contributors from across the spectrum expand on the state of creative ferment Naidu, Rodrik, and Zucman describe and offer new essays that challenge the current shape of markets and suggest more democratic alternatives.

    Featuring contributions from Quinn Slobodian (Globalists), Corey Robin (The Reactionary Mind), Dani Rodrik (The Globalization Paradox), William Easterly (The Tyranny of Experts) and Samuel Bowles (The Moral Economy).
