The American Global Challenge: Aligning Economy, Democracy & Environment in the 21st Century
Kane Hall
Seattle, WA
Share this event:

America and the world face historic challenges. The global economy is not working well for people or the planet. Dissatisfaction with government crosses the political spectrum, fueling anger that democracy is broken. And looming environmental problems exceed our current political capacity. How did we get here?  What can be done to address these great challenges of our time? This lecture series examines the prospects for realigning our economic, environmental and political systems in light of the outcomes of the 2016 elections: (a) economic and democratic system breakdown, (b) can capitalism be fixed, (c) the role of money in political reform (d) dismantling the environment versus economy myth, and (e) building the next system.

LECTURE SPEAKER: University of Washington Professor Lance Bennett
