How to Build a Just Economy (with Nick Romeo)

Journalist Nick Romeo joins us to discuss his new book “The Alternative: How to Build a Just Economy.” Romeo argues that the conventional economic wisdom has fostered political and economic instability, resulting in widening inequality, environmental degradation, and the exploitation of workers. He also highlights innovative solutions and success stories—including worker cooperatives, public-option marketplaces, and job guarantee programs— that paint a picture of how we can design systems in a market economy that truly work for everyone.
