  • Bill Gates Is Clueless on the Economy

    Dean Baker for Truthout: Last week Bill Gates called for taxing robots. It's nice to see the world's richest person proposing a measure aimed at redistributing money. Unfortunately, his idea makes no sense. We must stop assuming that productivity growth is the enemy of workers.

  • CPAC Dispatch: How Donald Trump Killed Movement Conservatism

Democracy at Work

Democracy at Work

Democracy at Work is a project, begun in 2010, that aims to build a social movement. The movement's goal is transition to a new society whose productive enterprises (offices, factories, and stores) will mostly be WSDE's, a true economic democracy. The WSDEs would partner equally with similarly organized residential communities they interact with at the local, regional, and national levels (and hopefully international as well). That partnership would form the basis of genuine participatory democracy. Utilizing media, from short video clips that go viral to our already well-established weekly and increasingly syndicated "Economic Update" radio program (WBAI, 99.5 FM, New York) and from podcasts to articles to blogs, this interactive website reaches and engages a fast growing audience.
