Is there a better way to organize society than the predator/prey system of
capitalism? Is there a way to achieve socialism without creating a
totalitarian society? Or, is it true, as British Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher said, that "There is No Alternative"? Professors Gar Alperovitz
and David Schweickart have both outlined their visions for a post-capitalist
world in their books, America Beyond Capitalism: Reclaiming Our Wealth, Our
Liberty, and Our Democracy and After Capitalism. Join us for a lively
discussion about what a post-capitalist world will really look like.
