    Description

    A leading progressive intellectual offers an agenda for how real democracy can triumph in America and beyond

    Since the New Deal in the 1930s, there have been two eras in our political history: the liberal era, stretching up to the 1970s, followed by the neoliberal era of privatization and austerity ever since. In each period, the dominant ideology was so strong that it united even partisan opponents. But the neoliberal era is collapsing, and the central question of our time is what comes next.

    As acclaimed legal scholar and policy expert Ganesh Sitaraman argues, two political visions now contend for the future. One is nationalist oligarchy, which rigs the system for the rich and powerful while using nationalism to mobilize support. The other is the great democracy, which fights corruption and extends both political and economic power to all people. At this decisive moment in history, The Great Democracy offers a bold, transformative agenda for achieving real democracy.

    Commentaires

    "It will take ideas and imagination, not just a defense of the status quo, to solve America's deep political crisis. The Great Democracy offers both in spades; though I do not agree with all of Ganesh Sitaraman's prescriptions, he has made an important contribution to the kind of bold political vision which can help to ensure that the future of liberal democracy will shine even more brightly than its past." (Yascha Mounk, author of The People vs. Democracy)

    "The Great Democracy is a remarkable achievement. Ganesh Sitaraman offers a far-reaching analysis of the challenges confronting American democracy and their economic underpinnings. He also proposes a comprehensive set of reforms that could actually make a difference. Read this book if you want a greater democracy." (Simon Johnson, coauthor of Jump-Starting America, 13 Bankers, and White House Burning)

    "This insightful, engaging book offers a vital diagnosis of our current political crisis. By explaining how we got into this mess, Ganesh Sitaraman cuts a clear and compelling path forward. There's no turning back the clock, no nostalgic return to normalcy - only the possibility of finally making democracy great by setting our sights on the socially inclusive and economically egalitarian future we the people deserve and desire." (Astra Taylor, author of Democracy May Not Exist, But We'll Miss It When It's Gone)

    Why does anyone let this man read a book

    The book is super interesting however, the narrator is awful. A computer reading it to you would be more compelling listening. He is such a drone that it makes it very hard to listen to.

    Manifesto for E Warren

    It goes quickly and it makes an interesting case for social democracy. At the end of it you'll get a high level sense of what at least one strain of social democracy advocates as the problems and solutions to America.
