Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society

by Eric A. Posner, E Glen Weyl

Revolutionary ideas on how to use markets to bring about fairness and prosperity for all.

Many blame today’s economic inequality, stagnation, and political instability on the free market. The solution is to rein in the market, right? Radical Markets turns this thinking―and pretty much all conventional thinking about markets, both for and against―on its head. The book reveals bold new ways to organize markets for the good of everyone. It shows how the emancipatory force of genuinely open, free, and competitive markets can reawaken the dormant nineteenth-century spirit of liberal reform and lead to greater equality, prosperity, and cooperation.
