Professor @DarrickHamilton calls out the trade-off of property rights and whiteness that underpins the current context -- and offers small glimmer of hope that this might be dismantled in this moment of crisis. I can't do it justice so recommend u listen.
Thx for retweet @DarrickHamilton. Ideas you expressed in @MMFlint interview are similar to ideas of @EconCommonGood, a citizen's movement, mostly in EU, working for economy based on dignity, co-determination, social justice. Would love to exchange.
