The real answer to the economic insecurity, environmental degradation, and political brutality of our time is building communities and networks of sustainable, cooperative economic justice. Many groups are doing that right now. How can we make that easier for everyone? 

Commonomics USA will discuss the Materialized Empathy project's three-point policy agenda: 

1. Making cooperative and sustainable living easier through legal and policy reform 

2, Democratizing our financial systems 

3. Providing immediate relief from economic insecurity (with emphasis on empathetic policymaking for a post-carbon transition)
