Bill Resnick interviews David Riemer about his latest book, Putting Government in its Place, the Case for a new Deal 3.0. But don’t be fooled. He sees state policy as crucial for controlling capitalism, and he attributes our current crises of inequality, homelessness, and global warming to perhaps unfortunate decisions made in the first Roosevelt New Deal and then aggravated as these unfortunate policies were embodied in legislation after World War II. He proposes what needs be done that would gain popular support today. Bill challenges David’s recommendations for mitigating global roasting, and they discuss whether, at least for a time, business as usual and its “free market” and constant growth must give way to a great international mobilization guided by public planning to reconstruct how people, especially in the larger industrialized states, produce and live.
