I am happy to announce the publication of Solidarity Economy I: Building Alternatives for People and Planet, a Center for Popular Economics publication with the cooperation of many in the U.S. Solidarity Economy Network (ussen.org). Many thanks to Emily Kawano and Jonathan Teller-Elsberg, who both put in a lot of time and effort on this project. Especially Emily who graciously and capably took the lead on this project. Thanks also to all the authors who put in the work of producing the chapters and taking our feedback with such good grace. It's a wonderful book. Lots of interesting and hopeful perspectives on what kind of economics we humans can create and practice when we put our minds and our hearts into it. You should buy five copies.
