Every era rethinks its moral political economy, how we structure our politics and government and our interactions with each other--and what values inform the system we create. Our world faces climate change, political polarization, pandemic, and growing inequality in addition to technological change that transforms our work and our relationships. How shall we redesign our institutions, create reasons for cooperation and consensus, and ensure that humans and our planet flourish?
