Parecon: Life After Capitalism, Michael Albert

Free online book; Verso: 2003. Excellent introduction to "parecon," or "participatory economics," or "democracy applied to the workplace and economy as a whole." In other words, a bad name for a great idea. Not socialism. Not capitalism. Not "the third way." Another option; one worth looking into.

For those who have the math (I don't) and want to delve deeper, here's a technical book, free, from Princeton U Press, 1991: The Political Economy of Participatory Economics.

And here's more than you'll ever read from parecon central at Znet.
