The One Percent Solution: How Corporations Are Remaking American One State at a Time
On Tuesday, April 4 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern, the Economic Policy Institute will host Gordon Lafer as he presents his new book, The One Percent Solution: How Corporations Are Remaking America, One State at a Time. In The One Percent Solution, Lafer traces the workings of the country's largest corporate lobbies as they have promoted anti-union and anti-worker legislation across all fifty states legislatures in the years since Citizens United. Lafer shows how corporate strategies have been shaped by twenty-first-century conditions—including globalization, economic decline, and the populism reflected in the 2016 presidential election—and how the corporate agenda is coming to endanger the scope of democracy itself.
Joining Lafer in discussing how progressives are pushing back on corporate-financed efforts to shape labor and economic policies on the state level is U.S.Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Dianne Stewart of the Economic Policy Institute and Christian Dorsey, Board Supervisor for Arlington County, VA.
This event is free and open to the public. Your RSVP will help us prepare.
