The Future We Want: Radical Ideas for the New Century


The Future We Want: Radical Ideas for the New Century Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stirring blueprint for American equality, from the “breakout stars” (The New York Times) of the young new left

The Occupy movement gave us energy and language, but its critics were quick to ask “What are the ideas?” The Future We Want is the answer. In a sharp, rousing collective manifesto, nineteen cultural and political critics under the age of thirty dismantle the usual liberal solutions to Americas ills and propose something else.

What would finance look like without Wall Street? Or the workplace with responsibility shared by all the workforce? From a campaign to limit work hours, to a program for full employment, to proposals for a new feminism, The Future We Want has the courage to think of alternatives that are both utopian and possible.

Brilliantly clear and provocative, The Future We Want—edited by Jacobin magazine founder Bhaskar Sunkara and The New Inquirys Sarah Leonard, both in their twenties—harnesses the energy and creativity of an angry generation and announces the arrival of a new political left that not only protests but plans. 

About the Author
