Economic Democracy

Capitalism, State-Capitalism, and Dead Authors

Centralized, undemocratic economic systems exploit all but the investor classes, destroy ecological systems, and form the backbone of other systems of domination and oppression. From the Marxist-Leninist, totalitarian states that called themselves "Communist" and "Socialist" to late-stage capitalist economies, dominated by corporations, these systems are obsolete and catastrophic.

Democratic Economic Models

Democratic control of production replaces current dictatorships of the workplace with companies owned and operated, in direct democracy, by all the employees of the company. Policies are set by all employees, administrators are elected, and while market economics remain, the surplus-value of every employee's labor is returned to them.
