Xavier Poux has an agronomic background and has a thesis in rural economics on the analysis of a regional agrarian system (that of the Plateau de Langres, upstream of the Seine). He has been working since 1992 in the AScA (Applications des Sciences de l' Action) research and development department, created by Laurent Mermet. His professional experience has led him to combine the analysis of agricultural systems - from an organizational, economic and environmental point of view - with the analysis of public decisions on agricultural development and environmental management. His career has also led him to articulate different levels of analysis and intervention, from the local level of the small territory to the organisation of agriculture at European level. He intervenes in the operational, methodological and theoretical registers on the one hand, aiming at reciprocal enrichment on the other.

Municipalist syndicalism broadly means democratizing unions as a means to democratizing local and regional public power. This is done through advancing an anti-racist dual power agenda for the labor movement by building and acting with communities of color on issues beyond the job.

Winning the election may be the easiest task Joe Biden and the Democratic Party have to accomplish over the next several years. Governing, however, is another matter. In both cases, climate policy has a prominent role to play. Will a President Biden be able to do what Obama didn’t—put the nation on a path to sustainability?
