Dollars & Sense was created in 1974 to meet the need for clearly written, accessible analysis of critical economic issues. Forty years later, Dollars & Sense magazine and books continue to offer alternatives to orthodox economic thinking, by challenging mainstream media accounts of how the U.S. and global economies work, and supporting grassroots movements for a new, sustainable economy.
RSVP requested. Suggested donation: $25-$75 (sliding scale).
