Economic Democracy Part II: Mutual Prosperity Through Distribution of Ownership

The contemporary critique of our free market economy includes the presence of extreme levels of income and wealth inequality. Critics argue this problem is endemic to “capitalist production relations” and cannot be remedied through economic reform.

The modern formulation of free market economics has consistently yielded unprecedented creativity, productivity, and wealth. But is this system optimal for maximizing a broad distribution of prosperity? Can reforms be made, within the free market system, such that future prosperity will be less disproportionately concentrated in the hands of an economic elite?

Alan Jessen’s presentation is Part II of our discussion on achieving economic democracy congruent with Unificationist ideals of “interdependence and mutual prosperity”. He presents a new paradigm, developed over the past forty years at the Center for Economic and Social Justice (CESJ), called Binary Economics. His respondent is Dawn Brohawn, Director of Communications for CESJ.
