Join journalist, author and Assistant Professor Nathan Schneider for two local book launch events Sept. 12 and 14. His new book Everything for Everyone: The Radical Tradition That Is Shaping the Next Economy follows former protesters and other activists exploring alternative economies, namely the cooperative movement.

This week marks the 10-year anniversary of the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history, when the investment bank Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. crashed on September 15, 2008. The sweeping financial crisis that followed sparked a national outcry for major economic reform.

Schneider's 2012 book Thank you, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse reported on protests surrounding the financial crisis and Occupy Wall Street movement. He's spent the past five years following former protesters and other activists who are exploring alternative economies.

Many of them embraced a model that is at once revolutionary and historic: the cooperative movement. Schneider’s new book explores the history and future of this movement and its ties to local, national and international economies.
