Join Senator Bernie Sanders and Random House on Monday, March 13 at 8 p.m. ET on Zoom to launch the senator’s new book, It’s OK to Be Angry About Capitalism. The book is a progressive takedown of the uber-capitalist status quo that has enriched millionaires and billionaires at the expense of the working class, and a blueprint for what transformational change would actually look like.
Senator Sanders will discuss the destructive nature of a system fueled by greed, and how we can work to create a society that provides a decent standard of living for all. Submit your question for the senator when registering, and yours may be answered during the event.
Each ticket includes admission to the event and a hardcover copy of It’s Okay to Be Angry About Capitalism. A limited number of signed bookplates are available while supplies last. Our independent bookstore partner is only able to ship to U.S. addresses. International attendees must provide a U.S. mailing address—if none is available, your book will be donated.

About the Book
It's OK to Be Angry About Capitalism
Bernie Sanders with John Nichols
“A clarion call against the American oligarchs . . . powerful.”—The Guardian
It’s OK to be angry about capitalism. Reflecting on our turbulent times, Senator Bernie Sanders takes on the billionaire class and speaks blunt truths about our country’s failure to address the destructive nature of a system that is fueled by uncontrolled greed and rigidly committed to prioritizing corporate profits over the needs of ordinary Americans.
Sanders argues that unfettered capitalism is to blame for an unprecedented level of income and wealth inequality, is undermining our democracy, and is destroying our planet. How can we accept an economic order that allows three billionaires to control more wealth than the bottom half of our society? How can we accept a political system that allows the super rich to buy politicians and swing elections? How can we accept an energy system that rewards the fossil fuel corporations causing the climate crisis? Sanders believes that, in the face of these overwhelming challenges, the American people must ask tough questions about the systems that have failed us and demand fundamental economic and political change. This is where the path forward begins.
It’s OK to Be Angry About Capitalism presents a vision that extends beyond the promises of past campaigns to reveal what would be possible if the political revolution took place, if we would finally recognize that economic rights are human rights, and if we would work to create a society that provides a decent standard of living for all. This isn’t some utopian fantasy; this is democracy as we should know it.
