Ep. 52 - Building the Solidarity Economy with David Cobb

David Cobb is a board member of Cooperation Humboldt, a local organization striving to create a solidarity economy in California’s North Coast. David is a "people's lawyer" who has sued corporate polluters, lobbied elected officials, run for office as the Green Party Presidential Nominee in 2004, and has even been arrested for non-violent civil disobedience. In this conversation we discuss Cooperation Humboldt’s vision for a solidarity economy, social change and progressive politics, public banking, improving the life of the working class, the rise of fascism, and much more.
