OUR ECONOMY! Economic Democracy and System Change

OUR ECONOMY!  Economic Democracy and System Change

Friday, April 12, 2019 – 9 AM-6 PM

CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies

Can the economy be democratized?  How can we transform it into a more socially inclusive and ecologically sustainable system?  How can we combat the growing concentrations of power and wealth? What current practices point toward a participatory democracy and resilient next system?

Our current political economy is unjust, anti-democratic, and ecologically unsustainable. This reality has led to a host of efforts to transform our political economy. This conference will bring together leading academics, researchers, advocates, and practitioners for a day of discussion on how we can achieve systemic transformation and make a political economy that is equitable, democratic, and sustainable.
