Happyreader | 1 comments With all the talk of universal healthcare and, in Chicago, the uproar over our sales tax increase to fund our County services, including our healthcare system which is pretty damn close to universal healthcare for the poor, I'm suddenly wanting to learn more about enlightened ways of funding all beneficial government initiatives. Anyone have any good book suggestions on funding progressive political change? Does such a book even exist?

Parecon: Life After Capitalism by Michael Albert

There are a few books like this around that give us some ideas about how we can just fix this s#!t ourselves in the community. I realized after reading a few authors, about progressive economic theory, ecology, and so forth that we are all smart enough to figure out any of these problems ourselves without allowing the economists and well... all the other pigs to try to tell us what we already know, how to be human.

Kay Cid (kaycita) | 2 comments there are definitely extensive manuals, books, trainings and resources on line on how to put together a fundraising campaign, most of them belong to social organizations or movements but are available upon request, there are as well many trainings and workshops on the subject, check out the Midwest Academy website, and the AFL CIO training "Union summer", the bread and roses community fund and training for change center...among many others around the country... some good books or publications to own are: agents of change (AFL CIO) and "organizing to win" (by the midwest Academy), do a search on "Organzing" and you'd be able to find pretty much anything you can imagine, and maybe there are other organizers out there who can recommend more books on the nuts and bolts of fundraising...

James Tracy (jamestracysf) | 1 comments Robin Hahnel's "Economic Justice and Democracy" makes many of the same points, but is infinitely more readable.
