On Saturday’s Up w/ Chris Hayes, we’ll discuss what the next phase of the economy should look like after the recovery is over. We’ll debate the value of growth – whether raw economic growth is, in itself, a good thing, or whether a happy, sustainable future with broad prosperity for all is possible without constant growth. And we’ll examine the major battles in Silicon Valley over intellectual property, likely to be one of the bulwarks of the next economy.
