Weekly in-depth interviews with forward-thinking people in the worlds of arts, entrepreneurship and politics with Laura Flanders.
Color of Change board chair Heather McGhee talks with Laura about her New York Times best-selling book, The Sum of Us, What Racism Costs Everyone and How we can Prosper Together. She shows how inequality saps the economy, hierarchies damage public health and short term greed wreaks havoc on the ecosystem.
We also take a close look at The American Rescue Plan, which breaks with much of the bipartisan consensus of recent decades and represents a historic step forward for a newly effective coalition of multi-racial forces at work in Washington, says McGhee.
How far does it go towards refilling what McGhee calls the “drained pool of public goods,” and what can everyday people do to uproot zero-sum thinking and embed a different set of values in their communities?
