How the world we imagine isn't quite how we know it to be. A talk with the Sikh Captain America and a look at the cooperative's role in world history. 

Vishavjit Singh knows how dangerous labels can be. That's why he dresses up as Sikh Captain America and tries to get everyone he meets to combat a pervasive enemy: hate and intolerance.

Later we hear from journalist Nathan Schneider, whose new book Everything for Everyone examines how the cooperative — an alternative model to the corporation — has helped shape the world economy.
