Since 1974, Dollars & Sense has been a leading source of left economic analysis. A perennial Project Censored award winner, its bimonthly magazine demystifies mainstream economics and gives voice to those the capitalist system leaves behind. In addition, its “Real World” series of classroom readers reaches 10,000 undergraduates each year, subverting the neoliberal orthodoxy that dominates the college economics curriculum and inspiring a new generation of economic-justice activists.
