Rise Up!: Michael Albert on Participatory Economy and the Current Turmoil in Egypt

July 10, 2013 - On Rise Up!'s 10-year retrospect this week, we feature a portion of a talk on “Participatory Economy” given by longtime radical scholar and educator Michael Albert from October 21, 2011. Albert is the mind behind the notion of participatory economics or ‘parecon’. For the second half of the show, we share an interview courtesy of the Media Coop with Cairo-based artist Adham Al Hafez and his analysis of the escalating political turmoil currently unfolding in Egypt.
