Working for an Economy by the People, for the People!

Hosted by Building Bridges Radio (WBAI, 99.5 FM NY) and featuring CEPR Co-Director Dean Baker, this event was an examination of the present crisis of capitalism and peoples’ demands that the road to economic recovery lies in directly increasing their living standard and abandoning trickle down economics. In the words of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. who gave his life fighting for the rights of the Memphis sanitation workers and for a poor people’s movement for economic rights, “A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth…and say: `This is not just.'"
