The Great Democracy

How to Fix Our Politics, Unrig the Economy, and Unite America

A leading progressive intellectual offers an agenda for how real democracy can triumph in America and beyond

Since the New Deal in the 1930s, there have been two eras in our political history: the liberal era, stretching up to the 1970s, followed by the neoliberal era of privatization and austerity ever since. In each period, the dominant ideology was so strong that it united even partisan opponents. But the neoliberal era is collapsing, and the central question of our time is what comes next.

One is nationalist oligarchy, which rigs the system for the rich and powerful while using nationalism to mobilize support.
