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

Democrat, Republican -- the list of presidential candidates confirms that business is proceeding pretty much as usual. The Future We Want proposes something different. In a sharp, rousing collective manifesto, ten young cultural and political critics dismantle the usual liberal solutions to America's ills and propose a pragmatic alternative.

What would finance look like without Wall Street? Or the workplace with responsibility shared by the entire 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 Nation 's Sarah Leonard -- harnesses the energy and creativity of an angry generation and announces the arrival of a new political left that not only protests but plans.

Update: The corporate-super-concentrated-media is going hot and heavy after Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump - - why? Because they offer different viewpoints on foreign policy -- they both have diverged from the American Empire. Which is what this book does in a most interesting fashion.

No, no, no! This book is too sane, it encompasses SANITY!
True America only yearns for craziness and self-destruction and self-delusion!
