Democracy From the Bottom Up?

“Imagine a country,” writes best-selling author and former Goldman Sachs managing director Nomi Prins, “where the majority of the population reaps the majority of the benefits for their hard work, creative ingenuity, and collaborative effort. Imagine a country run as a democracy from the bottom up, not a plutocracy from the top down.”

Prins continues: “Richard Wolff not only imagines it, but in his compelling, captivating, and stunningly reasoned book, Democracy at Work, he details how we get there from here — and why we absolutely must.”

On Tuesday, November 5, U. Mass Emeritus Economics Professor Richard Wolff, called by the New York Times, “probably America’s most prominent Marxist economist,” will defend the debate resolution:

Socialism is preferable to capitalism as an economic system that promotes freedom, equality, and prosperity.

Taking the negative: Soho Forum director and former Barron’s Economics Editor Gene Epstein.
