Toward a Feasible Socialism for the 21st Century

(p.198) Conclusion
After Occupy

Tom Malleson

Oxford University Press

Although economic democracy is primarily a set of reforms, it also embodies a vision of a future socialist society. This chapter presents an outline of a model of developed economic democracy in the form of market socialism. The chapter describes the basic components of such a society in order to demonstrate its viability as well as its desirability. While this kind of analysis of large-scale economic alternatives is far from the norm in contemporary political debate, I end by arguing that it should be much more so.

Keywords:   economic democracy, market socialism, capitalism, economic alternatives, David Schweickart, social democracy, feasible socialism
