The world is undergoing vast social, economic and political transformations. From the Arab Spring to the Occupy movement, it is clear that people are seeking out new forms of democracy. A new historical vista is opening before us. Democracy at Work is a manifesto for this time, calling for a democratic alternative based on workers directing their own workplaces. Written by America's leading socialist economist, Richard Wolff, the book offers an alternative viewpoint to the views of mainstream economists and pundits.

"Probably America's most prominent Marxist economist."
--New York Times Magazine

"Imagine a country where the majority of the population reaps the majority of the benefits for their hard work, creative ingenuity, and collaborative efforts. Imagine a country where corporate losses aren't socialized, while gains are captured by an exclusive minority. Imagine a country run as a democracy, from the bottom up, not a plutocracy from the top down. Richard Wolff not only imagines it, but in his compelling, captivating and stunningly reasoned new book, Democracy at Work, he details how we get there from here -- and why we absolutely must."
--Nomi Prins, Author of It Takes a Pillage and Black Tuesday

"Richard Wolff is the leading socialist economist in the country. This book is required reading for anyone concerned about a fundamental transformation of the ailing capitalist economy!" - Cornel West

"Ideas of economic democracy are very much in the air, as they should be,
with increasing urgency in the midst of today's serious crises. Richard Wolff's
constructive and innovative ideas suggest new and promising foundations for
much more authentic democracy and sustainable and equitable development,
ideas that can be implemented directly and carried forward. A very valuable
contribution in troubled times." --Noam Chomsky

"Bold, thoughtful, transformative--a powerful and challenging vision of that takes us beyond both corporate capitalism and state socialism. Richard Wolff at his best!"
--Gar Alperovitz, author of America Beyond Capitalism; Lionel R. Bauman Professor of Political Economy, University of Maryland

Praise for Capitalism Hits the Fan (book and DVD)

"With unerring coherence and unequaled breadth of knowledge, Rick Wolff offers a rich and much needed corrective to the views of mainstream economists and pundits. It would be difficult to come away from this... with anything but an acute appreciation of what is needed to get us out of this mess."
--Stanley Aronowitz, Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Urban Education, City University of New York
