GEORGE LAKEY

 

While people can don Viking attire for this evening, what should be a good, lively time is in store no matter what people wear this Halloween Eve as Swarthmore professor George Lakey is here for his new book, Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians Got It Right - and How We Can, Too (Melville House). Yes, economics this way is lively. “Carrying student debt? Working longer hours with no vacation?  Do you wonder if it is possible for the U.S. to reverse a generation of extreme inequality?  It doesn’t have to be this way.  Viking Economics helps us envision a different way of organizing our economy to put people and planet first. ”  -Chuck Collins. “Brilliant, fun to read, and most timely–just what Americans need right now! Lakey busts key myths that keep us believing we can’t have the society we want. Bravo for this great source of evidence-grounded hope!” -Frances Moore Lappé.
