Ganesh Sitaraman - The Public Option: How to Expand Freedom, Increase Opportunity, and Promote Equality

Upcoming Event
Friday, July 19, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Though the trend in recent years has been to decrease government’s role in civic life, Sitaraman—a professor at Vanderbilt Law School and longtime advisor to Elizabeth Warren, and author of The Crisis of the Middle-Class Constitution— shows that public institutions such as national parks, libraries, and swimming pools offer equal access, address social needs, and peacefully co-exist with private options. Arguing that the public option is more effective than vouchers and more equitable than the marketplace alone, Sitaraman offers concrete suggestions for how expanded government intervention could solve problems in housing, childcare, education, banking, and retirement benefits.
