After Capitalism

program date: 
Mon, 07/11/2011

 In 2002, David Scheweickart, a professor of philosophy at Loyola University, published a small and very readable book called After Capitalism.   It was a thorough critique of capitalism as a system for organizing our productive labor and the wealth it produces, and also an unusually detailed proposal for what he called a successor system. This replacement for capitalism he called “economic democracy,” and it was a form of socialism. Now, almost ten years later, Schweickart is publishing a revised edition, due out next month. Here Clayton Morgareidge reads from the preface to the new edition.

 "What could a telecom merger mean for economic democracy?" asks  Josh Eidelson in an article published in Dissent.  AT&T is merging with T-Mobile.  Is that a bad thing because it limits competition in a communications industry?  Or a good thing because AT&T is a union shop and T-Mobile is not?  Eidelson argues the latter in this piece, read and commented on here by the Old Mole's Joe Clement.  For an opinion piece that attacks progressives for suppporting the merger, check out this NY Times editorial.
