ACS Oregon: "The Public Option" with Ganesh Sitaraman

Powell's Books on Hawthorne, Portland, OR

Join the ACS Oregon Lawyer Chapter for a discussion with Professor Ganesh Sitaraman on his new book (co-authored with Anne Alstott), The Public Option: How to Expand Freedom, Increase Opportunity, and Promote Equality.

From public swimming pools to public schools, Americans have long used a public

option – government provision of goods or services that coexist with the private marketplace – to expand opportunity while retaining the benefits of markets. In the book, Sitaraman and Alstott make the case for the public option across a variety of new areas, from broadband internet to childcare. 

You can purchase a copy of the book here.
