Title: Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society

Description: Many blame free markets for rising inequalities and social divisions.  Radical Markets turns this conventional wisdom on its head, arguing that dramatically expanded markets can be an emancipatory egalitarian force, but only if we have the courage to challenge fundamental social institutions that stand in the way of truly free competition.  Challenging everything from private property to one-person-one-vote, Radical Markets lays out a bold vision that embraces technological change and diversity as engines of widely shared prosperity.
