Market For The People seeks to answer Chris Hedges' call for the need to set up local sustainable markets/economic systems that challenge the corporatist economic model which is based on oligopolistic and predatory practices. Our mission is to encourage people to develop localized food production, support the development of local micro-economies by supporting locally-owned independent businesses. In the video below, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Senior Fellow at the Nation Institute, and activist, Chris Hedges says that an effective movement that defies corporate power will have to be disciplined and be capable of articulating a clear vision. Market For The People's purpose is to find a way to answer that call. Would you join us in this worthy endeavor?
Notice: MFTP has chosen to feature Mr. Chris Hedges' message because it coincides with our philosophy and our point of view. However, we have not had any direct or indirect contact with Mr. Hedges, and therefore the content that appears on this website featuring him was included to elucidate on some of the broadest points about the need for a social justice movement to be disciplined and capable of articulating a clear vision, and in no way should it be considered an endorsement of MFTP by him.
