Kate Andrias and Ben Sachs Digging a Hole: The Legal Theory Podcast

    • Social Sciences

Professors Kate Andrias, of the University of Michigan Law, and Benjamin L. Sachs, of Harvard Law School, join us to discuss their new article, Constructing Countervailing Power: Law and Organizing in an Era of Political Inequality. They argue the law can facilitate organizing by lower-income groups and that doing so can increase their political power in this new Gilded Age. We also discuss what the politics of labor politics and labor history can tell us about the authors’ proposal.

Additional readings, including any referenced during the episode, are available on our website: DiggingAHolePodcast.com.
