Fan of the show? https://www.patreon.com/newleftradio (Support us on Patreon)! It's time to reimagine what our government does on behalf of Canadians, how it does it, and who it serves. It's time to rekindle democratic socialism for a new path forward for Canada. Andrew Jackson joins to discuss his new book which lays out the arguments for a future that turns away from capitalism and towards replacement with something altogether different. About The Fire and the Ashes: Rekindling Democratic Socialism In The Fire and the Ashes, long-time union economist and policy analyst Andrew Jackson looks back on a fascinating career in the labour movement, the NDP, and left politics, combining keen historical analysis with a political manifesto for today. As one of the few trade union economists in Canada, Jackson brings a unique insider perspective and decades of experience to bear on his critical reflections on the history and changing fortunes of the NDP, the failures of neoliberalism, and the waning and recent renewal of the democratic socialist tradition. What plays out is a battle of ideas fought by Jackson and the wider left—one meant to rekindle both political veterans and a new generation of activists who believe that a true democracy cannot exist with great inequalities of wealth and political power, and that social ownership and public investment must be brought squarely into the mainstream. https://btlbooks.com/book/the-fire-and-the-ashes (Buy the book here) About Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson is the Broadbent Institute's Senior Policy Advisor. In September, 2012 he retired from a long career as Chief Economist and Director of Social and Economic Policy with the Canadian Labour Congress. In 2011, he was awarded the Sefton Prize by the University of Toronto for his lifetime contributions to industrial relations. Educated at the University of British Columbia and the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he earned a B.
