The Future We Want: Radical Ideas for the New Century
A stirring blueprint for American equality, from the “breakout stars” (The New York Times) of the young new left
Democrat, Republican — the list of presidential candidates confirms that business is proceeding pretty much as usual. The Future We Want proposes something different.
In a sharp, rousing collective manifesto, ten young cultural and political critics dismantle the usual liberal solutions to America’s ills and propose a pragmatic alternative.
What would finance look like without Wall Street? Or the workplace with responsibility shared by the entire workforce?
From a campaign to limit work hours, to a program for full employment, to proposals for a new feminism, The Future We Want has the courage to think of alternatives that are both utopian and possible.
Brilliantly clear and provocative, The Future We Want — edited by Jacobin magazine founder Bhaskar Sunkara and the Nation‘s Sarah Leonard — harnesses the energy and creativity of an angry generation and announces the arrival of a new political left that not only protests but plans.
