Readings & Lectures Downtown

Whenever you go to your local public library, send mail via the post office, or visit Yosemite, you are taking advantage of a longstanding American tradition: the public option. Some of the most useful and beloved institutions in American life are public options, yet they are seldom celebrated as such. Author Ganesh Sitaraman joins us with perspective from his co-written book The Public Option: How to Expand Freedom, Increase Opportunity, and Promote Equality to challenge decades of received wisdom about the proper role of government and consider the vast improvements that could come from the expansion of public options.
