Joe Clement talks with Jesse Myerson about an article he wrote a couple weeks ago for Rollingstone that proposes five radical reforms that millenials should be organizing around. These include a job guarantee, basic income, land value taxes, public banks, and soveriegn wealth funds. He divides these reforms into labor, land, and capital reforms and describes them as "updates" to the current economy. They go back and forth over the merits and challenges of the different proposals.
