OUR ECONOMY! Economic Democracy and System Change

Union Coops participant and fabulous person Rebecca Lurie and the Murphy Institute at CUNY have organized a conference about the transition to a new economy. The conference is free, it’s at the Murphy Institute near Grand Central. Details below, hope to see you all there.

Friday, April 12, 2019 — 9am-6pm @ 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.
