Auteur: Albert, Michael
Titel: Realizing Hope
Sub titel: Life Beyond Capitalism
Someone once said that it is easier to imagine the end of the world than to imagine the end of capitalism. Michael Albert would disagree. 'Realizing Hope' offers a speculative vision of a future beyond capitalism - an alternative to the exploitation of human labour, the unchecked destruction of the earth, and the oppression of all for the benefit of the few. 'Participatory Economics' - 'Parecon' for short - is Albert's concrete proposal for a classless economy, developed from anarchist principles first introduced by Kropotkin, Bakunin, Pannekoek, and others. Under capitalism, the centre cannot hold. This book is a blueprint for a world that might be just over the horizon; a world we can begin building today.
