An Economy of the Future?

Documentary: Fixing the Future (2012). In this documentary, David Brancaccio asks the question, “Do people exist to serve the economy, or should the economy exist to serve the people?” Mr. Brancaccio visits people and organizations across the country that are attempting to reinvent the American economy at the grass root level. These pioneers look to create jobs and build prosperity in unique ways such as community banking, worker cooperatives, local business alliances, time banking/hour exchange, local currencies, and numerous other innovative strategies.
Available for streaming at Hulu, Hulu Plus, and iTunes.
