December 14, 2021, Video: "Economic Rights in the 21st Century: An Agenda to Neuter White Supremacy and Forge a Moral Economy In this lecture, economist Darrick Hamilton argues that throughout human history racism, sexism, and other “isms” have been used strategically to consolidate economic and political power for some at the expense of others. Economic systems have been grounded in values of self-interested accumulation without bounds. But we can make a different political choice: an economy grounded in values of inclusion, human dignity, sustainability, and shared prosperity. Hamilton will discuss how—without this potent policy alternative that neuters racist regimes—white supremacy and the despotic political appeal for divisive leadership will remain."
