The conclusion presents a conversation among the editors about how Chicago might become a “just city” rather than a city beset by persistent inequities. The authors agree that collective action and social movements can contribute to more egalitarian outcomes and a better quality of life for all. Garner uses the concept of “institutional structures of capitalism” to discuss the prospects for change; Hague sees a strong potential in local collective action; and Bennett emphasizes the need for national coalitions of working people organized for universal rights.

Keywords:   neoliberalism, Chicago, “just city”, institutional structures of capitalism, collective action, working people’s activism
