A brilliant book that takes Marxist economics and parses them into words that novices can understand, without simplifying sophisticated ideas. All the examples this book gives of people and communities making strides toward a better future give me hope for the world.

But, there are no better options, other systems had failed, critics of the current system do not propose alternatives...
Yes, there are options, now, and many more in the future.

Just not convinced that the book accomplished all it set out to do. The author was successful in making the field of economics more accessible. I am not afraid to peek into books on economy; however, it is not a guide. This popular educator hungers for more tools and tips for putting the principles and theories into practice.

Perhaps that is a book in the making for Catalyst and I?

I read this in a reading group with academic colleagues and also assigned some chapters to my class. However I think it would be much more appropriate to read as a community group or a family!
