"It is time for Americans to think boldly about what it will take to move our country to a very different place, one where outcomes that are truly sustainable, equitable, and democratic are commonplace."

""It's time to talk about what's next." Those are the words of academic and author Gar Alperovitz, founder of the Democracy Collaborative, who—alongside veteran environmentalist Gus Speth—this week launched a new initiative called the "Next Systems Project" which seeks to address the interrelated threats of financial inequality, planetary climate disruption, and money-saturated democracies by advocating for deep, heretofore radical transformations of the current systems that govern the world's economies, energy systems, and political institutions."
