The Just Third Way: Creating the Economic Foundations for the Beloved Community

Sunday, 15 January 2023 @ 2:00 PM EST - 3:00 PM EST

Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/9089192163

How can we create a thriving economy and healthy environment for all, that promotes the dignity, empowerment, and development of each person, from birth to death?

How can we reverse the global trends toward widespread poverty and concentrated economic power and ownership, by enabling every person to become a fully participating owner of productive capital (including labor-replacing technologies), while respecting the property rights of present and future owners?

Experts from the Center for Economic and Social Justice will discuss the principles of social and economic justice, system reforms, and current initiatives of the “Just Third Way of Economic Personalism,” a radical alternative to the wage-welfare systems of capitalism, socialism and their admixtures.

This new global paradigm would redesign the money system and offer an equal opportunity, just free market framework for realizing Dr. King’s personalist philosophy and dream of the “Beloved Community.”

Desired Time:
Sunday, January 15, 2023 from 2:00-3:00 PM Eastern

Dr. Kurland is co-founder and President of the Center for Economic and Social Justice (CESJ.org). He is a global pioneer in the Just Third Way of Economic Personalism, Kelsonian binary economics, and author of the Economic Democracy Act. As a federal investigator during the 1960s Civil Rights movement, he worked in Mississippi with Medgar Evers, SNCC and other leaders to end segregation and achieve one-person, one-vote.

Dr. Nah is the former President (14 years) of the Greater Bridgeport Chapter of the NAACP. She is working with leaders at the community, state, and national levels (the United States and Government-in-Exile of Biafra) to introduce Just Third Way economic reforms embodied in the Economic Democracy Act.

Eugene Gordon is the founder and Executive Director of Descendants of American Slaves for Economic and Social Justice (DAS4ESJ.org) in St. Louis, Missouri. His efforts led to the passage in Missouri of the first law in history to enable every adult and child in the state to become an equal owner of land and infrastructure through a Citizen’s Land Development Cooperative, a citizen ownership innovation developed by CESJ.

Moderator: Dawn Brohawn, Director of Communications, Center for Economic and Social Justice
