ACS Puget Sound: "The Public Option with Ganesh Sitaraman"

Town Hall Seattle, Seattle, WA

Join the ACS Puget Sound 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.


Ganesh Sitaraman, Chancellor Faculty Fellow, Professor of Law, Director of the Program in Law and Government, and ACS Faculty Advisor, Vanderbilt Law School; Member, ACS National Board of Directors and Board of Academic Advisors
