About Democracy at Work

Democracy at Work ([email protected]) is a non-profit 501(c)3 that produces media and live events. Based on the book Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism by Richard D. Wolff, our work analyzes capitalism critically as a systemic problem and advocates for democratizing workplaces as part of a systemic solution. We seek a stronger, fuller democracy – in our politics and culture as well as in our economy – based on workers’ equal collaboration and shared leadership inside enterprises and throughout society.

 

We create the following media projects:

  • Economic Update with Richard D. Wolff, a weekly TV and radio show and podcast

  • Global Capitalism: Live Economic Update, a bi-monthly lecture in NYC, filmed and released on Youtube

  • David Harvey’s Anti-Capitalist Chronicles, a bi-weekly podcast

  • Capitalism Hits Home, a bi-weekly podcast

  • All Things Co-op, a bi-weekly podcast

  • Cities After…, a bi-weekly podcast

  • Ask Prof Wolff, a short video series 

  • Wolff Responds, a short video series

  • We also host a blog, release limited items such as books, and offer partial support to volunteer groups across the world who are committed to advocating for a stronger, democratic economic system in their local communities.

 

Each of these is a collaborative effort, and are brought to you by the hard work and dedication of a small team of workers. To keep costs low, we work via a digital office and rely on donated time from Prof. Wolff as well as other volunteer contributors. We are a 501(c)3 but operate internally as a cooperative to better embody the ideals we believe are a critical part of effective system change.
