Play
Read more
In the book THE MAKING OF A DEMOCRATIC ECONONOMY co-authors Ted Howard and Marjorie Kelly outline seven principles of what they call a Democratic Economy: community, inclusion, place (keeping wealth local), good work (putting labor before capital), democratized ownership, ethical finance, and sustainability. It is these real life examples of people building businesses and employment opportunities with these principles that I discussed with my guest Ted Howard on KAZI Book Review. Ted Howard is the co-founder and president of the Democracy Collaborative, a nonprofit dedicated to community wealth building.

EOC 184: Ted Howard

Play
Read more

Ted Howard is the chairman of the Shoshone-Paiute tribe. These tribes once freely occupied the land in the tri-state area of what is now Idaho, Nevada and Oregon, and Ted Howard, who was the cultural resources director for the tribal government before becoming the chairman, is steeped in this history.


This interview was recorded as a part of an oral history series on the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey NCA. This series, called Dedication Point, was produced by the Birds of Prey NCA Partnership, with support from the Bureau of Land Management and the Archives of Falconry. While many of the interviews recorded for this series are focused on the very recent history of the Snake River canyon region, this interview with Ted Howard takes us back to the earliest interactions that humanity had with this landscape, and also provides crucial insight into issues over land ownership in Southwest Idaho and throughout the West.

The #DemocracyCollaborative, a"Democratic Economy' IS possible, with Ted Howard

The US economy is designed by the 1 percent, for the 1 percent, says Ted Howard in conversation here with Claudia Cragg (@ClaudiaCragg). His new book, , written with , offers a compelling vision of an equitable, ecologically sustainable alternative that meets the essential needs of all people. Ted Howard is the Co-founder and President of . Previously, he served as the Executive Director of the National Center for Economic Alternatives. Howard and Kelly argue cogently that we now live in a world where 26 billionaires own as much wealth as half the planet’s population. The extractive economy we live with now enables the financial elite to squeeze out maximum gain for themselves, heedless of damage to people or planet. But Marjorie Kelly and Ted Howard show that there is a new economy emerging focused on helping everyone thrive while respecting planetary boundaries.  At a time when competing political visions are at stake the world over, this book urges a move beyond tinkering at the margins to address the systemic crisis of our economy. Kelly and Howard outline seven principles of what they call a Democratic Economy: community, inclusion, place (keeping wealth local), good work (putting labor before capital), democratized ownership, ethical finance, and sustainability. Each principle is paired with a place putting it into practice: Pine Ridge, Preston, Portland, Cleveland, and more. This book tells stories not just of activists and grassroots leaders but of the unexpected accomplices of the Democratic Economy. Seeds of a future beyond corporate capitalism and state socialism are being planted in hospital procurement departments, pension fund offices, and even company boardrooms.  The road to a system grounded in community, democracy, and justice remains uncertain. Kelly and Howard help us understand we make this road as we walk it by taking a first step together beyond isolation and despair.

How extreme is wealth disparity in the US? Imagine every person in the economy walks by, in order of income from low to high, with heights proportional to what people make. You’d see mostly a parade of dwarves, with some unbelievable giants at the very end. Political economist and historian Gar Alperovitz and social entrepreneur Ted Howard of the Democracy Collaborative depict breakthrough models for breaking this vicious cycle by democratizing wealth, ownership and access to capital.
