The Future is Public! BOOK LAUNCH
November 13, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for the launch of two new books on the remaking of public services in Canada and the United States:
- Our Common Wealth: The Return of Public Ownership in the United States
- Corporatizing Canada: Making Business Out of Public Service
Privatization is deeply unpopular in North America and has been fought successfully. But if the anti-privatization movement only thinks defensively the best we can do is protect the status quo. Reclaiming public ownership, and rethinking the ways in which public services are delivered, is a crucial part of building a more equitable and sustainable public services future.
