At a pivotal moment of paradigm shift, many are asking, what will come next? According to many scholars and activists, the existing market-centric economic paradigm has failed: it has failed to deliver broad-based prosperity or financial stability, particularly for Black, Indigenous and other people of color. How do we forge a new economy that fosters broad prosperity with economic inclusion, civic engagement, social equity and human dignity at its center, regardless of identity? “Visions of a Post-Neoliberal Future” sponsored by the Institute on Race, Power and Political Economy, will bring leading thinkers, changemakers, policymakers, journalists, and activists to the New School to present their perspectives as part of the Henry Cohen Public lecture series. This course will explore the intersections of race, social stratification, and political economy in order to promote economic and racial justice. We will examine how the neoliberal economic framework came to be so powerful, permeating across academic disciplines, public policy debates, and mainstream discourse. Each lecture will assess how the existing paradigm has worked or not worked, with a particular attention to outcomes for Black and Brown Americans. Speakers will not only assess the problem -- they will offer new visions of the future. Students will develop critical thinking and leadership skills around a social equity agenda. Students will engage with some of the nation’s leading policy and social justice leaders from academic, philanthropy, foundations, government, and grassroots organizations. Students will be trained to write influential opinion-editorials and deliver public speeches around these issues.
