Ten Ways to Democratize Our Broken Economyby Gar Alperovitz and Keane Bhatt, September 26, 2013

1. Democratize Your Money!

Put your money in a credit union – then participate in its governance.

2. Seize the Moment: Time For Worker Ownership!

Help build a worker co-op or encourage interested businesses to transition to employee ownership and adopt social and environmental standards as part of their missions.

3. Take Back Local Government: Demand Participatory Budgeting!

Organize your community so that local government spending is determined by inclusive neighborhood deliberations on key priorities.

4. Push Local Anchors to do Their Part!

Make nonprofit institutions like universities and hospitals use their resources to fight poverty, unemployment and global warming.

5. Reclaim Your Neighborhood With Democratic Development!

Build community power through economic development and community land trusts.

6. Public Money for the Public Good!

Organize to use public finances for community development.

7. Stop Letting Your Savings Fuel Corporate Rule!

Get your workplace to offer more retirement-plan opportunities for responsible investment. 

8. Democratize Energy Production to Create a Green Economy!

Get involved in public and cooperative utilities to fight climate change.

9. Mobilize the Faith Community!

Get your religious organization to move its money to a local financial institution involved in community development.

Fight unemployment by joining the fight against work
