Michael Albert speaks at the Harvard Coop about his book Remembering Tomorrow: From SDS to Life After Capitalism. May 8th 2007. The book is a lucid political memoir that offers an ardent defense of the project to transform global inequality. It recounts a life of uncompromising commitment to creating change one step at a time. Whether chronicling the battles against the Vietnam War, those waged on Boston campuses, or the challenges of creating living, breathing alternative social models, Albert brings a keen and unwavering sense of justice to his work, pointing the way forward for the next generation. Michael Albert currently works with Z Magazine and the website Znet. Schooled in the New Left and anti-Vietnam War movements and an activist ever since, Albert primarily focuses on matters of movement building and creating alternative media. He developed, along with Robin Hahnel, the economic vision called participatory economics. A Ph.d in economics, Albert is the author of fifteen books. He lives in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, with his wife and partner, Lydia Sargent.
