Introducing Economics for Emancipation - Trailer
Welcome to Economics for Emancipation, a four-part podcast produced by the Center for Economic Democracy featuring conversations between incredible organizers helping to build visionary projects around the country.
Our guests offer thoughtful, sharp, and at times surprising takes on the world of economics, grounded in stories from their work in movements for social justice. Each episode explores fundamentals, like "what is the economy?" and "what's the difference between governance and government?" From there, conversations flow to family, friendship, and the work of world of building economic and political power across the country, with justice as our North star.
Feels like a gift to listen in on these convos amongst visionary practitioners. A world beyond capitalism is possible.
The host and guests truly did make an impact on me. Listening to it caused me to gear into a better understanding on the way Boston works. Providing voices to introduce topics surrounding economic democracy does create a more personal need to change the way the community works. Definitely give it a listen :)
The four episode special was great! It’s amazing to see how there is a similar concluding analysis of all those who were speaking — if you are reading this review and are hesitant about listening, give it a listen.
