Economic Democracy: An Alternative to Pure Capitalism or Socialism

Here's a video lecture by Professor of Christian Ethnics Gary Dorrien on an alternative economic model: Economic Democracy. This lecture was given at Union Theological Seminary as apart of the class U.S. Christianity and the Current Social Crisis, team taught by the President of Union Seminary Serene Jones, Dr. Corneal West, and Dr. Gary Dorrien. I thought this may be interesting to God's Politics readers considering the Mobilization to End Poverty and the fact that he is a theologian.
