In the 1930s Sweden and Norway were even more polarized than the U.S. is now. By the 1950s they’d reached consensus and were in the top tier of international ratings for freedom and shared abundance. Author George Lakey tells secrets of their success, from his book «Viking Economics.»

“Brilliant, fun to read, and most timely—just what Americans need right now! Lakey busts key myths that keep us believing we can’t have the society we want. Bravo for this great source of evidence-grounded hope!” — Frances Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet.

George Lakey is an activist, author, and retired professor with both an arrest record and affinity for Broadway tunes. His first time arrested was in the civil rights movement; recently he went to jail in the successful campaign to stop the nation's seventh largest bank from financing mountaintop removal coal mining. He has led over 1500 social change workshops on five continents and taught at several universities, most recently Swarthmore College. «Viking Economics» is his ninth book, all of which are about how to support change.
