Ganesh Sitaraman, law professor at Vanderbilt University, and longtime advisor to Senator Elizabeth Warren, serving as policy director and senior counsel, is co-author, along with Anne Alstott, of Yale’s Law School, of The Public Option: How to Expand Freedom, Increase Opportunity, and Promote Equality (Harvard University Press).
“At a time of widespread debates about the role of public provision, Sitaraman and Alstott make a vibrant case for developing and preserving public options in education, health care, child care, broadband access, banking, and retirement benefits. To get beyond slogans and move toward real and practical proposals to improve the daily lives of Americans, and strengthen our commitments to others, read this book.”—Martha Minow.
“Timely, important, and convincing, this book is pretty much the definition of ‘fresh thinking.’ Key reading for a political generation that is on the search for new ideas for old problems.”—Tim Wu.
