Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Mike Konczal about being free from the market.
The “free market” we’re informed by its proponents is the very best path to prosperity for all. “Free enterprise” is a proper that subsumes different rights. Freedom from rules will unlock wealth. This is the parable that America is steeped in. Rarely if ever, do our flesh pressers demand that we middle our freedom to dwell full lives, work affordable hours, entry well being care, and so on.
But American historical past is stuffed with the wrestle to outline freedom as centering on human wants. Telling that story in a brand new e-book is my visitor.
Mike Konczal is a director on the Roosevelt Institute, the place he focuses on economics, inequality, and the function of public energy in a democracy. He is a co-author, with Joseph Stiglitz, of Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy. His new e-book known as Freedom from the Market: America’s Fight to Liberate Itself from the Grip of the Invisible Hand.
