FIXING THE FUTURE
DEADLINE - AUGUST 11
Fixing the Future - BUY THIS ON BLU-RAY!
After the economic meltdown of 2008, the nation stands in urgent need of economic growth that s not based on risky financial bets placed by Wall Street. In search of new solutions, Brancaccio visits communities across America that are using innovative approaches to create jobs and build prosperity. He talks to working Americans from Maine to Washington State, and from Texas to Ohio, who are re-engineering the future, including: 1) Sustainable Connections, a collaboration of thousands of businesses committed to buying locally, hiring locally, and selling locally; 2) Yo Mama s Cookin , a cooperative of women of color who are part of a national movement to build and train cooperative groups; and 3) The Time Bank, an institution that allows people to barter their time and services. These and other efforts are built on American values of commonwealth, shared prosperity, fairness, wellness, sustainability, and creativity. Brancaccio also talks to noted economists David Korten and Jane D Arista, as well as Matthew bishop (U.S. Editor, The Economist), to explore the new pathways being charted by economic reformers. Can these experiments be nurtured and grown to provide new opportunities for our children and grandchildren?
