Have any of you checked out Robin Hahnel's latest book:
Economic Justice And Democracy: From Competition To Cooperation (Pathways Through The Twenty-First Century)
"In Economic Justice and Democracy, Robin Hahnel argues that progressives need to go back to the drawing board and rethink how they conceive of economic justice and economic democracy. He presents a coherent set of economic institutions and procedures that can deliver economic justice and democracy through a "participatory economy." But this is a long-run goal; he also explores how to promote the economics of equitable cooperation in the here and now by emphasizing ways to broaden the base of existing economic reform movements while deepening their commitment to more far reaching change. Includes a postscript by Noam Chomsky.
"Robin Hahnel's book is an excellent overview of the principles of economic justice, and the practical and theoretical flaws of both capitalism and the various attempts to reform or eliminate it. But it's far more than critique; it's also a blueprint for a better society, and offers plenty of ideas on how to get here. Even if you're not fully convinced, it will make you think. And how many books do that?" —Doug Henwood "See AK Press
