Policy, Power, and the Radical Imagination

How can concrete, on-the-ground examples of the institutions of a new economy—like worker cooperatives, community land trusts, and public banks—work to open up a sense of radical possibility around systemic alternatives? What kind of organizing then makes possible new policy solutions that help scale and replicate these models? And how do we keep this circuit from idea to action and back again ratcheting up towards truly transformative change (and not just incremental reforms)? This panel and discussion will look at how projects building pieces of the new economy can inspire larger movements, and what these movements can do in turn to lay the groundwork for further projects to take root and grow.
