Democratizing Our Economy
Our Economy Hurts everyone, even those who are making millions. It is ravaging our resources, destabilizing our climate, causing record wealth disparity, and it evokes tensions around the world.
We must bring democracy to the workplace. Democratizing our economic enterprises is how a democratic society restores trust, dignity and common sense to our daily lives.
Based on any rational system of thought, the world is going through a technological transformation which will alter many of the systems we use daily. The trend will increase over the coming decades and mankind must show an ability to adapt to these changing environments. If we do not, it will lead to a dystopian future where concentrations of wealth determine the living and future conditions for hundreds of millions of human beings. Democratic control of these economic and social forces is essential if human being are to integrate successfully with both nature and technology while ensuring their collective peace and happiness.
