New Economy Question of the Day!

Let’s be real.

Those who have benefitted from the concentration of wealth and power aren’t going to voluntarily give up their hold on society.

Our ideas for an alternative economy — no matter how beautiful, logical, or even necessary they are — aren’t going anywhere without a social movement powerful enough to demand real change and weather the repression as it inevitably arrives.

The good news is that this movement is emerging. While we have a lot of work ahead of us, there is an increasing desire to build together across traditional silos. Our ideas and projects are resonating with people and even beginning to displace extractive industry.

This brings us to the question for day three of #NewEconomyWeek:

How can we connect and learn from successful experiments, pilot projects, and campaigns to build broad-based power and effect deep transformation at scale?

Today, and each day this week, we will be featuring written responses by NEC coalition members and allies. We are also thrilled to be partnering with Yes! Magazine to broadcast some of this week’s content on their website. Check out their #NewEconomyWeek page here.

Also if you haven’t already, make sure to register for today’s incredible online panel featuring leaders from Project Equity, National People’s Action, the US Federation of Worker Co-ops, and One Earth.
