And in light of the uprising in Baltimore, we have also decided to reframe the discussion to focus on strategies for transitioning Baltimore — and greater Maryland — towards a New Economy. We hope to discuss inner-city equity as a key to sustaining job creation, improving citywide procurement systems, and starting up cooperative housing, which turns renters into owners. We’ll also look at place-based cooperatives in agriculture, grocery stores, solar energy installations, taxi companies, and community health centers. This is a left-right solution, where governments can combine financial incentives and local procurement equality with private-sector bootstrapping — such as “do it yourself” (DIY) entrepreneurial business — in a way that fosters racial justice.
